- Head of Banking & Finance Litigation
Louise has a varied practice which in recent years has focused on financial litigation involving secured lending. Louise is instructed on cases ranging from multi-jurisdictional frauds to surveyor’s negligence via non-standard possession actions and has become a trusted advisor to the financial institutions with whom she works. Clients comment on her integrity and the way she takes the time to understand their business needs and objectives.
Louise also specialises in real estate litigation and acts for developer clients on disputes relating to issues of construction quality and consumer complaints. Following the repeal of the Property Misdesriptions Act Louise has presented to the housing industry in conjunction with the Home Builders Federation and has devised an e- learning training programme for developers in relation to the Consumer Protection Regulations 2008 to allow desk top training on this complex area of law. Louise is a member of the Property Litigation Association, the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association and is regularly invited to speak at training events and conferences where comment is often made about her down-to-earth, approachable style as well as the obvious depth of her knowledge.
Louise’s experience is wide-ranging, but the common element throughout all her work is her professional, client-focused, tenacious approach.
In their words
"As a litigator my work involves helping clients sort out their problems, whether that means formal legal proceedings, a strongly worded letter or a negotiated settlement. I keep my client's interests in mind at all times as well as trying to advise not only on the letter of the law but on the commercial aspects of the matter at hand. "
