Position

Victoria joined Chambers in February 2020 as a member of the Business and Property team. She has wide-ranging expertise in Chancery and Commercial matters, and Insolvency. Given the urgent nature of much of the work undertaken, Victoria offers a quick turnaround on all papers.

 

Insolvency

Instructed on behalf of companies, liquidators and trustees in bankruptcy and appears regularly in the Chancery Division of the High Court.

Victoria’s cases typically concern transactions at undervalue, wrongful/fraudulent trading, issues as to validity of securities and directors’ disqualifications proceedings. Her caseload includes various hearings such as applications to set aside statutory demands, injunctions to restrain presentation of winding up petitions or advertisement and validation orders.

Litigation

Advises and acts in a range of matters which belong to the Business and Property Court including boundary disputes, mortgages, contentious probate and landlord and tenant matters alongside commercial disputes, including claims relating to breaches of contract for the supply of goods, professional negligence matters and claims brought by commercial lenders.

A recent example includes acting for a debtor in a large insolvency and possession claim involving multiple cases as to whether the creditor could actually show good title to certain alleged debts.

Mis-selling

Victoria has a wide range of experience in mis-selling cases with a particular leaning to consumer loans and car finance up to High Court level. Victoria also accepts instructions against brokers in this area.

Equine

Undertakes Equine cases including cases relating to the sale of horses.

Data Protection

Regularly instructed on GDPR and DPA issues such as subject access requests (including pre-action disclosure applications), data breaches and compensation claims. Also advised various entities, including a major charity on their data protection obligations and policies.

Outside of Chambers, Victoria’s interests include playing polo.
