Called in 2005, and recognised as one of 10 “Stars at the Bar” by Legal Week in 2010, after just four years in practice, Emily has a broad commercial chancery practice, with experience in complex onshore and offshore litigation and arbitration.
Emily’s practice includes insolvency and company work and she has developed particular expertise in multi-jurisdictional commercial fraud cases (often with foreign law elements). She has considerable experience in applications for interim relief and committal for contempt of court.
Between 2010 and 2014, Emily acted as one of the principal juniors for JSC BTA Bank in its multi-billion dollar litigation against Mukhtar Ablyazov and others. As a result of her involvement in the BTA litigation, her name appears in at least 10 reported decisions (3 from the Court of Appeal).
Since mid-2014, Emily has been acting as junior counsel for the Algosaibi family in its Cayman Islands litigation seeking the recovery of billions of dollars allegedly misappropriated between 2000 and 2009 by Maan Al Sanea.
