    Head of Practice Area - Dispute Resolution

    I am the Head of Practice Area for Dispute Resolution and deal with complex cases in the Multi Track and High Court including contractual claims, shareholder disputes, intellectual property and defamation. I also supervise Legal Executives and Paralegals in the department, helping them to develop their own knowledge and provide a high level of service to clients.

    I qualified in 2002 and have 16 years’ experience in Litigation. I have worked at a national firm and became a founding partner of a new firm and latterly worked on my own account. I successfully initiated my department being listed in Legal 500.

    I have a LLB (Hons) Law with French and was awarded Higher Rights of Audience in 2002.

    My particular expertise is in acting for high profile individuals, dealing with the media including defamation claims and brand disputes and litigation surrounding restrictive covenants.

    I am a member of the Women Lawyers Division and the Lawyers with Disabilities Division. I have previously contributed to Litigation Funding and Law Society Gazette and am a regular speaker at WLD conferences. I have chaired a variety of networking groups.

    My recent successes have included a successfully defended claim (including advocacy) by large law firm against a former Equity Principal, an intellectual property dispute in the High Court, acting for whistleblowers in a variety of organisations and obtaining a, large scale international freezing order.

    Outside work, I enjoy going out and about with my daughter, cookery – especially West Indian and Lebanese cuisine and many types of music especially reggae and atmospheric French stuff.
