Sarah Keogh has extensive expertise in employment law, with a particular focus on matters concerning the medical professions and the police. This specialism is complimented by her experience in personal injury, clinical negligence and professional misconduct cases, and in her role as a legal adviser to several professional regulatory panels.  This background gives Sarah a unique advantage when advising in cases which cross over between areas of expertise.
