Victoria joined Eversheds LLP on qualification in 2012 as an associate in our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice group. Victoria has a broad experience ranging from working on multi-million pound fraud claims to contractual/tortious disputes for individuals.

She also has experience in various other types of fraud work and is a steering committee member of the Midlands Fraud Forum.

Victoria’s most recent experience includes working on a large scale and high profile internal investigation, conducted at the request of the FCA, by a major financial institution into the mis-selling of financial products.

Victoria holds several other positions of responsibility. She is a committee member of the Birmingham Law Society International Committee which is tasked to help promote the international expertise of Birmingham. She is also a committee member of both the operational board and the main board of the Professional Institute of Networking West Midlands.

Before her training contract started, Victoria completed a nine month secondment with the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry analysing the local market conditions and discussing with businesses ways to assist strategic economic growth in the West Midlands.

Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP is ‘excellent in commercial litigation’. Adam Fisher is ‘particularly impressive – he is smart, full of sense and particularly good at boiling down complex legal points into a language lay clients understand, helping them understand their options accurately and simply’ – he represented 18 Week Support in various breach of confidence claims against a competitor seeking to enter the NHS insourcing market. Rich Lloyd is ‘particularly good – he is very strong on law, and excellent on the detail while retaining a really good macro view of the matter being litigated’. He acted alongside senior associate Victoria Callicott for Sims Group in the defense of a £5m claim brought by one of its suppliers. Principal associate Ridah Iqbal is also a name of note, as is senior associate Helen Amison. In an illustration of its ‘excellence in the public sector arena’, Sarah Jones and principal associate Isabelle Mitchell, working alongside the firm’s office in Cardiff, acted for the Ecclesiastical Insurance Office and the Independent Schools Inspectorate as core participants in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, which follows on from the team’s involvement as solicitors to the Independent Jersey Care inquiry.
