Emily Johnstone


I am passionate about providing excellent legal representation to clients and understanding the needs and challenges which they face as injured individuals.

I completed my training contract with the Foot Anstey Group in September 2018, during which I spent two seats with the medical negligence team and assisted with cases involving child birth injuries, sepsis, surgical negligence and delayed diagnosis of cancer.

I am now a medical negligence solicitor based in the Bristol office. As a newly qualified solicitor I deal with a variety of different claims, representing both patients and their families.

Career Highlights

– Training and working alongside nationally recognised medical negligence experts
– Assisting in a £5 million settlement for a client who suffered a life changing birth injury
– Achieving a 2.1 Law degree at the University of Cambridge in 2015

To further improve my written and oral advocacy skills, I chose to undertake the civil Higher Rights of Audience course in addition to the core litigation modules as part of my training contract.
