Jane is a commercial dispute resolution lawyer who advises companies, board members and high-net-worth individuals on risk and the avoidance and resolution of disputes both domestic and international.

Jane has a particular focus on disputes involving property and trusts and maximising insurance recoveries for policyholders. She also advises companies in relation to workplace safety with experience in dealing with the aftermath of serious and fatal accidents in the workplace.

Although Jane prefers to resolve disputes without the need for proceedings, she has extensive experience of litigation, arbitration and mediation.

  • Jane’s decisiveness, clear insight and knowledge of the legal position allowed immediate progress and formed the foundation for a successful outcome. When matters became critical, Jane’s reassuring guidance alongside a candid view of the facts ensured the reality was understood but that the potential routes to resolution were clear. Aligned to this, an ability to bring clarity to and drive for the agreed objective, allowed a successful outcome to be reached. Achieving all of this, this while keeping the other side on their toes, ensured a challenging process became manageable while the desired resulted was negotiated.

  • I have been a client of Jane's for over thirty years both personally and in my capacity as Chief Executive Officer at Merchant Retail PLC. Jane has undertaken instructions upon complex commercial issues, very quickly understood complexities of the prospective litigation and provided advice of the highest qualities. Jane is an excellent lawyer, capable of pressing claims to a conclusion, but retains common sense and a pragmatic approach to balance the “win at all costs” approach.
