Practice Overview

Joanne has a broad commercial chancery practice with an emphasis on property litigation and related professional liability. She is ranked in Band 1 of Leading Silks for Real Estate Litigation by Chambers & Partners, which says “she’s really smart and knows her stuff.” She is described in The Legal 500 as “commercial and very client- friendly in her approach” and by Who’s Who Legal – UK Bar 2016 as “an ‘outstanding talent’ at the Bar whose broad practice enables her to offer clients ‘creative solutions’”.

Joanne’s strength is the ability to combine intellectual rigour with a good understanding of her clients’ commercial interests and a determination to find the best way to serve them. She is recognised for the quality of her courtroom skills and her ability to deliver advice on the most complex of problems in a clear and client-friendly manner.

As well as appearing in courts and tribunals at every level, Joanne has very considerable experience of arbitrations and expert determinations, having acted in a substantial number of cases resolved by these means in recent years. She accepts instructions to act as an arbitrator or an independent expert in her specialist practice areas and also advises non-lawyer arbitrators and independent experts, as well as routinely acting as an advocate in arbitration or expert determination proceedings. Joanne is also an accredited mediator.
