Francesca has gained a wide experience of Chambers’ key practice areas, including insolvency, company law, property (including landlord and tenant), pensions, trusts, professional liability and commercial litigation. Francesca has been instructed in her own right, and is developing a broad commercial chancery practice across all of Chambers’ core areas of expertise.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Francesca worked as in-house counsel for Darktrace, a leading cyber security company, and its sister company Luminance, an AI provider for the legal profession.

Francesca is a Lord Mansfield Scholar at Lincoln’s Inn, and recipient of the Hardwick Entrance Award.
