Rowena specialises in commercial chancery litigation, with a strong emphasis on insolvency, company and business disputes. With extensive experience in both the High and County Courts, Rowena is a confident advocate and is comfortable acting in both a led and an unled capacity. Rowena is regularly instructed by officeholders, shareholders and directors, in addition to her corporate and individual clients.
Although her primary focus is on insolvency and business disputes, Rowena also has considerable experience in property and trust-related matters. Rowena’s work in these areas complements and often coincides with her other areas of practice, and she is always happy to accept new challenges and explore new or developing areas of law.
The directories have described Rowena as being “absolutely excellent”, “unflappable on her feet” and “a real force to be reckoned with in court”. In both Chambers UK 2019 and Chambers UK 2020 Rowena has been recognised as an up and coming junior in Restructuring/Insolvency.
Before joining the Bar, Rowena studied Law at Cambridge University. Rowena was actively involved in the Cambridge Law Society through her time at University and was appointed Mistress of Moots in her final year. She went on to achieve the fifth highest-ranking Law degree in the University that year and to be awarded the James Crouch scholarship from Gray’s Inn.
