Caroline Jennings - Simcocks

Within: Dispute resolution

According to one client, Simcocks ‘stands head and shoulders above the crowd’; it acts for both claimants and defendants in multi-party commercial disputes, as well as in court applications in the context of schemes of arrangement and takeover proceedings. Practice head Christopher Arrowsmith ‘is excellent, knowledgeable, highly experienced in trust litigation and someone you want to get involved on your side’. He is currently acting for one of the defendants in a multi-million-dollar quantum claim concerning the design and storage of high-value computer components, while advocate Elizabeth Simpson is representing an international life insurance company in a multi-jurisdictional group action pertaining to insurance and regulatory law issues. The practice was boosted by the arrival of advocate and English solicitor Rebecca Paterson from Hill Dickinson LLP in Liverpool. Advocate Caroline Jennings, who ‘is an excellent non-confrontational communicator’ and heads the firm’s family law practice, is also noted.
