Consistently recommended by Legal 500 UK since 2016, most recently as a ‘Rising Star’, Jennifer provides the firm’s clients with legal and commercially focused advice on landlord, tenant and real estate disputes. She acts for developers, investors, landlords, occupiers and funders on commercial and residential cases and is the team’s lead lawyer in commercial property dispute matters.
Legal 500 UK notes that Jennifer has “a ferocious and forensic grip on detail”, so it is not surprising that she has led on contentious property matters for a number of the firm’s key clients including Hays Travel, Luxury Leisure (trading as Admiral casinos and Kwik Tan), John Eliot Footwear Limited (part of the Clarks Footwear franchise) and NCG.
Her expertise is also evidenced by her membership of the Property Litigation Association and a seat on the committee for PLA North.
