Marlene has a unique dual specialism in children law and in large-scale public and private inquiries. She has particular skill and experience in cases requiring the careful management of serious or sensitive allegations of harm against children. Marlene acts in all levels of court and has appeared in both the High Court and Court of Appeal with and without a leader.
