Kirsty Benson

Kirsty joined Potter Rees Dolan in 2012 and is a Trainee CILEx in our clinical negligence team.

Education & career

After beginning her legal career as an office junior, Kirsty became a legal secretary and, when she joined Potter Rees Dolan in 2012, she was given more paralegal/assistant tasks. She then began her CILEx journey which she graduated in 2022.

Kirsty's current role mainly involves dealing with all the pre-action work, such as requesting records, sorting records, making pre-action disclosure applications as well as assisting the clinical negligence team with other tasks.

Outside of work

Kirsty likes to socialise, go for walks and to the gym and watch Formula 1. She also enjoys spending time with her family, including her 'wild child' who keeps her on her toes!
