Practice Overview

Tiffany specialises 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 including s994 petitions, claims against fiduciaries, and claims arising out of insolvency and civil fraud.

She has appeared before courts and tribunals at all levels. In May 2012 she appeared unled in the Privy Council in Kelly v Fraser [2012] UKPC 25, an estoppel claim involving a Jamaican pension fund.

She enjoys working as part of a litigation team. She is known for being ‘user-friendly’, as well as for her meticulous preparation of cases, attention to detail and first-rate drafting skills. Her clients range from investment banks to charities, from high net worth individuals to those who need representation on a pro bono basis.

Tiffany is recommended as a leading junior:

  • by The Legal 500 in the fields of private client – trusts and probate, professional negligence, and property litigation;

  • by Chambers Global in the field of dispute resolution: commercial chancery;
  • by HNW Guide in the field of chancery: traditional.

She is described in the current directories as “extremely good at handling appeals and a good draftswoman”; “exceptionally bright and hard-working. She makes the advice very easy to understand when tackling subjects that are very, very difficult”; “very approachable. I have seen her on her feet: she’s very good at cross-examination, and is very persuasive”; “calm, practical and good with clients”; “willing to explore issues and find creative solutions”; “takes a look at the bigger picture, rather than getting bogged down in the minutiae”; “bright and considered”; “receives praise for the insight and concision she shows in her ‘very good written work’”; technically very sharp and engaging with clients.”

In previous years the directories have commented that she is “a brilliant, self-assured advocate who is a real asset to any team”“very persuasive and adaptable on her feet”“a rising star, who is brilliant under pressure”, “good to work with, clever and reliable” and “just very knowledgeable and really swift in terms of delivery”“incisive and tactically adept” with “an excellent grasp of complex valuation matters”; “accessible, down to earth, calm and very bright –  she goes above and beyond for clients”; “sources emphasise her fine cross-examination skills and say ‘her style is effective as she is ruthless, yet never over the top, when exposing the limitations of her opponent’s case’”, and she “knows how to give the other side a good kicking.”
