Areas of expertise: Commercial dispute resolution

Profile

Julie is a commercial dispute resolution partner in the Oxford office who has been a distinguished practitioner specialising in litigation and dispute resolution since 1979.  She has been successfully involved in a wide range of complex cases, many of them reported.  Julie specialises in commercial and corporate disputes with an emphasis on regulatory and professional negligence cases.  She works with a number of teams across the firm.

She has received consistently outstanding  rankings in the legal directories for a number of years, ranging from a description in Chambers & Partners UK guide in 2009 as "one of the best litigators in the country" to the current entry for 2014 which says: "Julie Bond is enormously experienced.  She deals with company law and property disputes in addition to professional indemnity litigation.  One client says: "She is enormous fun; I think that's the thing about her. She clearly has the technical knowledge at her fingertips but combines that with a human touch as well."
