“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 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).
Travel & Foreign
A keen interest in a range of travel and foreign claims has led to a developing practice representing both claimants and defendants in claims:
- Under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
- Aboard and concerning planes and other aircraft under the Warsaw Convention and Montreal Convention;
- Relating to the cancellation of flights, denied boarding and flight delays under the Denied Boarding Regulation (EC 261/2004);
- Aboard cruise ships and other vessels under the Athens Convention;
Fiona may accept Public Access work, where she can be instructed directly by a member of the public rather than a solicitor.
