Megan Crowther

Called 2017

Megan accepted tenancy in October 2019 after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Andrew Sugarman, Hylton Armstrong, Nicola Twine and Lucy Bairstow. She practises clinical negligence, personal injury and employment law. 

Megan’s growing practice includes both court work and paperwork. She regularly advises on liability and quantum in injury claims and drafts pleadings in all areas of her practice. In employment matters, she accepts instructions for preliminary and final hearings, including remedy hearings. She is thorough in her paperwork and reliable in court.

Before pupillage, Megan graduated from Durham University with a law degree and went on to complete the Bar Professional Training Course at the University of Law in Leeds. She was the only student in her year to be graded as “Outstanding” and achieved the highest grade nationally at the University of Law. Then, she worked as a catastrophic injury paralegal at a top ranked law firm in The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners focusing on brain and spinal cord injury cases.

Notably, she accompanied her pupil supervisor, Andrew Sugarman, to the EAT on a sensitive discrimination matter.
