'Conscientious and able, a very safe pair of hands'
Managing Partner, BVI
I’m the Managing Partner and Head of the Litigation department in our BVI office. I have practised in the BVI since 2011, before which, I worked in London at Macfarlanes LLP.
I have extensive experience acting on a wide range of international litigation, contentious trust and insolvency matters, with emphasis on distressed funds work, and have been involved in many of the largest offshore disputes to come before the BVI Court in recent history.
I've recently spoken at leading international conferences, including International Trust and Estates conference in Barcelona and the Serle Court International Trusts and Commercial Litigation conference in New York.
In 2021, I won 'Woman of the Year - Future Leaders - Partner, Director' Gold Award at the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2021.
