As a Practice Development Lawyer, I work with my colleagues to ensure that they and their clients are up to speed with the latest legal and procedural developments in dispute resolution. I also still act regularly on some of the firms’ largest client litigation matters.
I trained at Lewis Silkin and qualified into the employment team where I was particularly involved in High Court litigation and arbitrations relating to restrictive covenant, confidential information and bonus claims. I worked as part of a team that successfully defended a hedge fund in an LCIA arbitration worth in excess of $200 million. More recently I acted with commercial litigation colleagues for an international construction contractor in an ICC arbitration involving claims valued at over €300m. I continue to work regularly on a variety of large-scale litigation cases.
Now as a Practice Development Lawyer, I spend a significant part of my time working with the team to write case updates and articles for publication on developments in dispute resolution and the practical implications for our clients’ businesses. I also support the many client training events we hold, as well as getting involved in knowledge management projects within the team.
