Practice Overview

Having practised as a commercial-chancery barrister for over 20 years, Jennifer practises ADR as a neutral, helping parties to resolve their disputes by acting as an arbitrator, mediator or conducting binding or non-binding evaluations and private FDR’s.

Jennifer’s experience as an arbitrator includes disputes involving partnerships, pharmaceuticals, companies, media contracts and finance agreements. She has been appointed to many of the major arbitral institution lists, including those of BVI IAC, HKIAC, AIAC and DIAC. She is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.  She has acted as sole arbitrator, co-arbitrator and presiding arbitrator.

Her experience as a mediator includes both commercial and private client disputes, reflecting her experience as counsel and her recognised client handling skills and commercial approach.  She has particular experience of difficult partnership/JV disputes but she has also mediated company, commercial, property, wills and trusts disputes.  She is experienced at remote mediations as well as in person mediations and has also conducted mediations with multiple parties.  She is recommended as a mediator by Legal 500.

Jennifer is able to draw on both her experience as a commercial chancery barrister and her medical science background. Her practice as a barrister has covered the breadth of commercial chancery practice, including litigation, drafting and advisory work, with a strong emphasis on disputes involving breach of fiduciary duty, company, partnership, trusts and probate and fraud.

Particularly well-regarded for her commercial outlook and client interaction, Jennifer is praised by The Legal 500 as being “exceptionally user-friendly, easy work with and a great team player,” and Chambers and Partners says “she attracts particular praise for her excellent, candid and common sense-based client service.”  She has been ranked in Tier 1 for Partnership work.
