Ayesha Smart Joins the Team at St Pauls Chambers

We are delighted to announce that Ayesha Smart formerly of Park Square Barristers has joined the team at St Pauls Chambers.

Ayesha enjoys a mixed practice of Crime, Civil, Commercial Litigation and Regulatory.  She has prosecuted and defended a variety of offences. She accepts instructions across a broad range of civil and commercial litigation including contract disputes, bankruptcy proceedings and intellectual property disputes. With a medico-legal background Ayesha has particular strength on healthcare regulatory matters.

Her previous experience within the NHS and thorough working knowledge of policy and procedure within the medical sector is a real asset in matters concerning disciplinary action. She is well acquainted with the measures that ensure professionals are fit to practise and meet professional standards.

Working in Pathology before coming to the Bar, Ayesha has gained great familiarity with post-mortem procedures and has developed a strong working knowledge and understanding of complex medical processes. Her role within the NHS involved testing and analysing a variety of samples across the different pathological disciplines.  This, combined with her placements at the Coroner’s Court and placements within a hospital environment, provide her with additional insights when it comes to inquests and the issue of causation.
