Emily has a thriving commercial chancery practice, with an emphasis on commercial, contractual, company, and trust and estates disputes.
She welcomes instructions in all of these areas, either led or as sole counsel. She is regularly instructed as junior counsel in large scale and high-profile commercial litigation (including appearing in the appellate courts), and as a former solicitor is experienced in working as part of a wider legal team. She also often appears unled in both the High Court and County Court, and has drafted pleadings in, and advised in relation to, numerous commercial disputes and interlocutory applications.
During the 2017-2018 legal year Emily worked as a judicial assistant to Lord Wilson, in both the United Kingdom Supreme Court and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. She assisted with numerous cases including:
Morris-Garner and another v One Step (Support) Ltd  UKSC 20 (leading case on Wrotham Park damages)
Rock Advertising Limited v MWB Business Exchange Centres Limited  UKSC 24 (leading case on ‘no oral modification’ clauses)
Steel and another v NRAM Limited  UKSC 13 (determining when a solicitor assumes responsibility towards the other side for a misrepresentation)
Whitlock and another v Moree (Bahamas)  UKPC 44 (determining whether the beneficial interest in a deceased’s joint bank account passed by survivorship)
Between 2013 and 2017 Emily trained and practised as a solicitor at Payne Hicks Beach, a leading private client law firm, specialising in commercial disputes and contentious trusts and estates matters.
