Areas of Emphasis

 

Insolvency - Rowena regularly acts for office holders in both corporate and personal insolvency proceedings, taking on a variety of work in the High and County Courts. She is regularly instructed on bankruptcy and winding up petitions in the High Court and County Courts, acting both for the petitioner and for the debtor/company. Her on-going work includes acting as Junior in a multi-million pound dispute on behalf of joint liquidators.

 

Commercial chancery - Rowena’s practice embraces all aspects of commercial litigation, and over her first year of tenancy she has appeared frequently in High Court and County Court claims and applications. She was recently successful in appealing a District Judge’s decision on a Fast-Track claim involving complex issues of rescission and misrepresentation. She has acted in numerous Small Claims and Fast Track trials, and is involved in a series of on-going claims regarding issues of penalty clauses, incorporation and contractual interpretation.

 

General chancery and company - Rowena is regularly instructed on general Chancery and company matters. Much of her work overlaps with and is complemented by her insolvency experience, as issues of trusts, fiduciary relationships, and breaches of duty arise in both. She accepts instructions in all aspects of company and general Chancery law

 

Property - Rowena is regularly instructed across a wide range of property law. She frequently acts in possession hearings (including mortgagee, landlord and tenant, and trespasser claims) and advises on all aspects of property law.
