Her expertise also covers arbitration, banking and finance as well as fraud. She regularly advises in connection with off-shore disputes in the Channel Islands, the Caribbean and the Isle of Man.

Her insolvency practice covers all aspects of corporate restructuring and insolvency. She advises creditors, directors, companies and office holders on a wide variety of corporate insolvency matters including, liquidation, administration, schemes of arrangement, CVAs and other less formal work-outs.
