Sarah Erwin-Jones introduces our newest social care partner Cynthia Watts

12 December 2018

In this short video, we introduce Cythia Watts, who specialises in public sector defence work; interviewed by Sarah Erwin-Jones. Both Cynthia and Sarah discuss their experiences within the sector and the different types of cases they have worked on. Throughout the video, we discuss a number of topics including:

  • CN & GN - a case Cynthia knows well
  • vicarious liability
  • peer on peer abuse
  • the key and challenging feature of limitation within the field and the misconceptions of how this is used from a case law point of view.

A final topic is GDPR and how this has raised a number of issues for clients in terms of handling claims, looking for documents and safely sharing documents. We’d love to hear what your key concerns are.

If you would like more information on the topics covered in this video, please contact Sarah or Cynthia direct who will be more than happy to help.
