Practice Overview

Tiffany is an experienced advocate specialising in commercial litigation, trusts and estates disputes, property litigation and professional liability claims. She has experience in ‘business’ litigation of all kinds, often with an international element, including fund and partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, claims against fiduciaries, and claims arising out of insolvency and civil fraud.

She is well-known for being “a great advocate” (Chambers & Partners 2018), for her cross-examination skills and for being “extremely good at handling appeals”. The legal directories also comment that she is “a ferocious litigator cross-examiner”, that “her style is effective as she is ruthless, yet never over the top, when exposing the limitations of her opponent’s case”, and that she “knows how to give the other side a good kicking”. She enjoys working as part of a litigation team and is recognised for being ‘user-friendly’, as well as for her meticulous preparation of cases, attention to detail and first-rate drafting skills.

She takes care to explore issues with her clients and find creative solutions to the complex problems that arise in practice. Her clients range from investment banks and high net worth individuals to charities and those who need representation on a pro bono basis.

Tiffany is one of the leading names at the Bar in her fields of practice. She is recommended by the directories as follows:
