Profile

Charlotte is an associate in the commercial dispute resolution team in London and has built up a broad base of dispute resolution experience, including in UK and cross-border commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation. She qualified as a solicitor advocate (Higher Courts Civil Proceedings) in 2018, and can therefore conduct advocacy on behalf of her clients in all courts.

With a focus on the resolution of business disputes, often with an international or offshore angle, Charlotte advises on commercial contract disputes, company matters, including shareholder disputes, directors’ duties and breach of warranty claims, financial services disputes, insolvency matters, and professional negligence. She is a member of the firm’s international trade and commerce group and the banking and financial services disputes group. She plays an active role in the London Solicitor Litigation Association (LSLA), is the elected vice-president of the Junior LSLA, and regularly contributes to the legal press.

Charlotte joined Penningtons Manches in 2016, having previously spent six years at another City-based law firm. During this time she was seconded to the in-house legal team of a large institutional bank for six months.
