Anna has a commercial chancery practice with a particular focus on civil fraud and insolvency disputes.
She is recommended as a leading junior in her field in Chambers & Partners in which she is described as “an absolute pleasure to work with, she’s extremely thorough, leaves no stone unturned and is responsive and reassuring”. “In paperwork, she has a gift for finding the key points out of the mountain of detail and presenting them clearly and concisely” (Chambers & Partners 2020). Previous editions describe Anna as a “talented junior with a direct and focused approach to commercial chancery work, who shines in civil fraud and insolvency work” (Chambers & Partners 2019) with clients praising her “no nonsense” approach and ability to “focus laserlike on difficult legal or factual issues”.
As well as being instructed as a junior to leading counsel, Anna regularly appears as sole counsel on trials and interim applications (including freezing and ancillary orders). She also has substantial experience in dealing with cases involving conflict of laws and jurisdictional issues.
Anna undertakes work both in England & Wales and offshore and has recently acted in cases in Bermuda, the Isle of Man and the Caribbean. She is recommended as a leading junior in offshore work in the 2019 edition of Legal 500.
