Antitrust/Competition Disputes, Environmental & Product Liability, Human Rights
Wessen plays a key role in both our competition and human rights & environmental practice areas. Providing access to justice for individuals and businesses – regardless of the practice area – lies at the cornerstone of her practice.
Throughout her years in practice, she has worked on some of the most well-known competition cases of recent years, including the MasterCard / Visa interchange fee litigation. In addition, she has worked on ground-breaking cases in the human rights sphere. This includes the fight to end #PeriodPoverty, working alongside Free Periods and the Red Box Project, and the ground breaking petition with the UN CRC on behalf of 16 petitioners
In addition to her competition work, Wessen is also focused on building claims with regards to the global climate crisis and pushing for safer air in London and the UK.
Because of the nature of her practice, she represents both people and businesses, on an individual or group basis, and has worked pro bono on several matters.
