Practice Overview

Marcia is a leading practitioner in insolvency, company and partnership law as well as commercial litigation. Her work encompasses both domestic and international matters. She has appeared in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands and in the Isle of Man.

Consistently praised for “her user friendliness and robust advice”, she is said to be “brilliant” and to give “robust, first-class advice”. “A quality professional”, she is also “highly rated for her intelligent and committed approach” and for being a “punchy advocate”.

Chambers UK and The Legal 500 have recommended her for many years in commercial litigation, company and insolvency. Chambers UK also ranks her for commercial chancery work, noting in addition her expertise in property related litigation.

The recent 2017 edition of Chambers & Partners describes her as “a powerhouse” who “is fair, knowledgeable and very practical in terms of understanding the outcomes rather then being esoteric about the law.” “A tenacious adviser who punches well above her weight.” 

(Insolvency): Talented silk with a substantial insolvency practice. She has recently been involved in a number of cases in the personal insolvency space, particularly in relation to bankruptcy tourism. Solicitors note that she is “great with clients.” “She is very responsive, extremely pragmatic and a great team-player.” “She is easy to deal with, good on her feet, and has great expertise in insolvency matters.” Chambers & Partners, 2016

(Chancery Commercial): A new silk in 2015. She continues to advise and represent clients in a number of commercial contexts, and is well versed in issues of company, partnership and insolvency law. “Very good on her feet, she always seems to have another gear to get into. You can just see her step it up with ease if need be.” Chambers & Partners, 2016

(Commercial Dispute Resolution): Took silk this year on the back of a successful career as a highly popular junior. She is most adept at handling insolvency cases, and offers further expertise in relation to company law proceedings. “She is tenacious, hard-working, technically good and charming.” Chambers & Partners, 2016

She also sits in the High Court as a Deputy Insolvency and Companies Court Judge.

Marcia is an active provider of talks and seminars and sits on the editorial board of Lexis PSL for insolvency.
