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 “just brilliant in Court” (Chambers & Partners) and “a great advocate”, for her cross- examination skills and for being “extremely good at handling appeals”. The legal directories also comment that she is “fierce when you need her to be fierce…her legal mind is incredible”, “a tough and tenacious advocate” (Chambers & Partners), “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 has appeared before Courts and Tribunals at all levels, including the Privy Council. She appeared in the Supreme Court in May 2019 in Sequent Nominees Ltd (formerly Rotrust Nominees Ltd) v Hautford Limited, a case concerning the exercise of contractual discretions, and the reasonableness of withholding consent.

She enjoys working as part of a litigation team and is recognised for being “a very able chancery practitioner, a good advocate and an excellent team member” (Chambers & Partners), as well as for her meticulous preparation of cases, attention to detail and first-rate drafting skills.
