Indi specialises in mental health law and patient-related matters. In particular, Indi advises on urgent serious medical treatment matters regarding individuals without consent including issues of capacity and decision making in the person's best interests. Indi regularly delivers training to health and social care professionals on topics such as: mental health, consent to treatment, mental capacity, deprivation of liberty and child law in a healthcare context. She has a specialist practice in cases involving obstetrics care and eating disorders, and withdrawal of treatment.
Indi was involved in the high profile, end of life case of Archie Battersbee  and attended the many inherent jurisdiction hearings at the High Court and Court of Appeal to determine whether it was no longer in Archie’s best interests to continue to receive mechanical ventilation and other life sustaining treatment and therefore lawful for it to be withdrawn. The Supreme Court and the European Court of Justice were also called upon to re-review the Judgment of Hayden J, and the subsequent Court of Appeal and Supreme Court’s decisions that it was in Archie’s best interests to have his mechanical ventilation withdrawn. This was arguably the highest-profile matter of 2022 in the UK, and received extensive mainstream press and media coverage.
In addition to Court of Protection matters, Indi also represents NHS Trust clients at inquests. She is experienced in representing parties particularly in cases where the deceased’s mental capacity and mental health is in question prior to their death and where criticism is raised against public authorities regarding their duties to vulnerable adults (in inpatient and community settings). Recently Indi assisted an NHS Trust in a complex and sensitive matter involving a young lady who suffered from an eating disorder and died after taking illegal slimming pills which are not licensed for human consumption.
