Sophie’s work involves a variety of contractual and commercial disputes as well as property disputes.
Sophie regularly represents clients from pre-action stages through to trial and advises on all aspects of individual cases including the prospects of success. She recently acted on behalf of an accountancy firm and was successful in proceedings against an unincorporated association’s employee whereby they were found to be personally liable for the debts incurred by the association.
Sophie has been exposed to a number of commercial and chancery matters through her pupil supervisor, Matthew Smith, who heads the Property Team at PSQB.
She has experience in drafting pleadings in property disputes ranging from rights of way, trespass and nuisance and can advise on the merits of individual cases. She accepts instructions on behalf of claimants and defendants.
Sophie also undertakes interim relief work having recently advised on the prospects of obtaining injunctive relief in a matter concerning a neighbour boundary dispute.
Sophie prides herself on her attention to detail which is particularly pertinent when dealing with the often complex issues which arise from commercial and chancery matters. She has experience of dealing with both lay clients and professional clients in what can sometimes be very challenging situations in order to achieve the best result.
