“She is a junior but she has a fire in her belly.  She is very good at taking in a lot of info and providing robust advice. She’ll take an approach that might not be the easiest, and give an opinion even if it isn’t what you want to hear. Clients feel they can have confidence in her. I think the clients love working with her and are happy to take her advice”.

Mediation

Charlotte qualified as a mediator in 2013 and undertook mediations for several years alongside her litigation practice.  She now practices exclusively as a mediator in relation to both traditional Chancery disputes and Court of Protection matters (where she was a panel mediator for the Office of the Public Guardian’s pilot programme evaluating the benefits of mediation in Court of Protection disputes).

 

Charlotte has herself been recommended in by Chambers and Partners as a “phenomenally tough negotiator” but also a barrister who is “very good at sitting down with clients and going through difficult personal issues”.  She is a hard-working and effective mediator.

Charlotte’s practice at the Bar has given her a strong belief in mediation as a method of resolving disputes in the areas in the traditional Chancery and Court of Protection fields where the disputes which arise are often highly complex and deeply personal to the individuals involved.
