Prior to commencing pupillage, Chelsea was employed as a Litigation Executive, where she gained extensive experience in civil, commercial and chancery litigation. Her caseload ranged from high value breach of contract claims against government bodies, high value contested probate matters, and complex bankruptcy disputes.
Chelsea also grew a healthy clientele within property litigation. She has advised and represented clients in boundary disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, leasehold disputes, possession claims and housing disrepair. Recently she has successfully represented the Claimant in a complex building construction dispute where the issues involved both breach of Building Regulations and the Building Contract.
Chelsea has recently appeared in the Civil Appeal Court in Leeds where she was instructed to represent the Claimant in an appeal against a Deputy District Judges decision to strike out a claim for an Abuse of Process following a claim being pursued against a non-existent company after the company was deregistered from the companies register and thereby proceedings being a nullity.
Chelsea accepts instructions to draft pleadings and is happy to provide pre-action advice on the merits of individual cases. She is happy to work to short deadlines where papers need to be turned around quickly.
Chelsea may accept Public Access work, where she can be instructed directly by a member of the public rather than a solicitor.
