Bramble Badenach-Nicolson

Call: 2019

Bramble joined Hailsham as a probationary tenant in December 2021, having previously undertaken pupillage and secured tenancy at a criminal set. She is currently supervised by Francis Bacon and accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ practice.

Bramble is developing her professional negligence practice and recently appeared for the Claimant in a two-day multi-track solicitors’ negligence trial at Plymouth County Court.

Earlier this year, Bramble concluded a four-month secondment with the Professional Regulatory Sector at Capsticks LLP, working as part of a small team investigating Social Work England cases. She now accepts instructions in all healthcare disciplinary matters and regularly acts for registrants in NMC proceedings.

As a Junior Junior on the Attorney General’s Panel, Bramble’s practice includes public inquiries. She is working on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care in the Infected Blood Inquiry and has previously been involved in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.

Bramble is committed to pro bono representation. She takes on cases at Advocate and has advised in professional negligence and regulatory matters. Bramble also volunteers for the AvMA helpline and serves on the AvMA inquest panel. She recently represented the family of a three-year-old girl with Trisomy 21 who died as a result of complications in her treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia; the Coroner returned a conclusion of natural causes with a rider of neglect, to reflect the hospital’s failures in caring for the child.

During her legal studies, Bramble volunteered at the Lambeth Law Centre, the Free Representation Unit and the Citizens Advice Bureau; she attended Social Security tribunal appeals with clients and made written submissions on their behalf.

Bramble assisted in drafting the Health and Medicine Chapter in the Consumer and Trading Standards: Law and Practice Tenth edition, 2022; this involved researching the regulation of cosmetics, medical devices and medicines in the UK.
