Dispute Resolution - commercial

Position

Associate.

Nia has obtained broad contentious experience across UK, European and Commonwealth jurisdictions in commercial disputes, labour, competition, regulatory and behavioural matters.

She has been involved in bringing several novel and high-profile competition and regulatory claims, both in the UK and New Zealand, in which the former was successful at the Supreme Court and is considered a landmark UK competition case.

Nia has also attended a dawn raid which involved implementing an immediate and organised response to a warrant executed on the client’s premises by a UK regulator.

Nia advises and represents clients with regards to a wide range of disputes and supports senior associates and partners to deliver pragmatic and innovative solutions to clients on a timely basis.

Most recently, Nia was heavily involved in defending a former managing director against a multi-million dollar proceeding for, inter alia, alleged breaches of directors’ duties and assisted New Zealand’s Financial Markets Authority to bring a claim against a multi-national insurer for breaches of disclosure obligations.
