Henrietta is a solicitor in the firm’s Disputes Resolution team. Henrietta advises on all stages of the litigation process, from initial case analysis through to trial. Recognising that litigation is not always appropriate in every case, she also assists with settlement negotiations to achieve commercial outcomes for her clients.

Henrietta advises on claims in both the High Court and County Court. She has a broad practice and her experience ranges from commercial contract disputes to internal investigations, shareholder disputes and debt recovery. Henrietta often advises in-house counsel and is a member of the firm’s In House Lawyers Group.

As well as private individuals, Henrietta’s recent clients have included schools, a private bank and high-profile charities. Henrietta is also developing her practice within the hospitality and retail sectors, having recently advised a private membership club and a British company specialising in innovative central heating solutions.

Much of Henrietta’s work has an international element, and she has experience liaising with lawyers in other jurisdictions, most particularly in France where she is assisted by her French language skills.

Henrietta has a particular interest in the law of privilege and is a contributor to the firm’s annual update on the topic.
