Caroline FieldFox & Partners

Fox & Partners‘ practitioners are most noted for handling domestic and cross-border litigation. Although the firm is active across the professional services sphere, it has built specific expertise in the financial services sector, where it handles cases involving the impact of partner expulsions on carried interest arrangements. Partner exit negotiations are another area of strength, particularly in situations where there are conduct or performance issues. In addition, the group is also well-known for bringing and defending discrimination and whistleblowing allegations. Catriona Watt, who specialises in contentious departures and arrivals, co-heads the team with Caroline Field, who is an expert in bullying and harassment cases. Dean Fuller undertakes both contentious and advisory work, and he regularly advises LLP members and partners on regulatory and corporate restraints on their operations. Other important team members include founding partner Ronnie Fox, who is known for partnership disputes, and senior associate Shoshana Bacall, whose growing practice consists of partner exits and team moves.
