Profile

Mairi has a strong commercial chancery practice, with particular focus on commercial disputes, insolvency and civil fraud. Mairi has significant experience in group actions arising from failed property investment schemes. Mairi is ranked as Up and Coming by Chambers and Partners in the field of Restructuring/Insolvency, where she is described as “a very safe pair of hands indeed” and “absolutely on top of the details”.

Recent cases in which Mairi has been involved include:

  • Representing (led by Simon Johnson) defendants to a claim worth £50 million brought by a large group of individuals alleging fraudulent misrepresentation relating to the sale and purchase of holiday and student properties. Among other things, Mairi appeared as junior counsel on the 3-day application to discharge a worldwide freezing order: 4VVV Ltd v Spence [2023] EWHC 1 (Comm).
  • Representing (led by Niall McCulloch) the claimant liquidators of a bridge lending company in the 4-week trial of their claim worth £20 million in fraudulent trading and breach of duty against the company’s former directors.
  • Acting (led by Niall McCulloch) for the petitioner and provisional liquidators of a company suspected of involvement in a substantial and complex labour supply fraud with an international element. A winding up order was successfully obtained on 24 October 2023.

Mairi’s practice is exclusively contentious and she regularly appears, both as sole counsel and as part of a counsel team, in the High Court and the County Court. Her practice also involves a wide range of advisory work. She accepts instructions in all of Chambers’ main practice areas.
