“She is personable, approachable and excellent with clients.” – The Legal 500 (2016)
Fiona Ross has a primarily civil-law background and draws upon her previous work experience in the commercial sector.
She has appeared for claimant or defendant in commercial and contractual disputes, and has experience representing breweries, publicans and individuals in cases concerning breach of covenant, user clauses, purchase ties and refusals to renew tenancies.
Due to Fiona’s experience in arguing technical costs points she is also repeatedly instructed to attend costs case management conferences where she is often successful at significantly reducing the opposition’s budget while maintaining the totals in her own Precedent H.
Fiona is experienced in insolvency work and regularly presents and attends winding-up petitions for trustees against companies. She is regularly asked to advise both companies and trustees of the potential outcomes of the insolvency proceedings.
Fiona has also undertaken work concerning possession actions in respect of private and social housing, acting for local authorities and housing trusts (including mortgage possessions and anti-social behaviour order applications and breaches).
Fiona may accept Public Access work, where she can be instructed directly by a member of the public rather than a solicitor.
