Practice Overview

Emily’s practice encompasses a broad range of chancery and commercial work. She is particularly experienced in both the litigation and advisory sides of the law relating to pension schemes, trusts, estates and taxation. Whilst her practice has an emphasis on matters involving complex technical issues, such as those with a significant actuarial or mathematical content, she has a reputation for giving clear, practical and commercial advice and being very user-friendly. She is frequently praised by legal directories for her incisiveness. Emily is a fluent German speaker.

In her spare time, Emily is in the final stage of a part-time BSc course in Mathematics. She is a member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

On the pensions side, Emily has significant experience of pensions litigation (including regulatory work, professional negligence and rectification claims) and she regularly advises on issues including scheme funding, the scope of powers in pension schemes and the effect of mistakes in pension scheme documents. Complementing her pensions practice, Emily has a broad private client practice. She acts in a range of contentious and non-contentious trust and estate litigation, including cases with a foreign element. She advises on a wide range of issues with an emphasis on private wealth planning, tax and the drafting of trust documentation.

Emily was ACTAPS Contentious Barrister of the Year 2014.

Emily has taken the decision to cease making submissions to the legal directories, until such time as they publish full and transparent criteria, which are aligned with her values.
