Erin has a broad commercial practice and welcomes instructions in all of the areas of work in which Chambers specialises. She has advised, drafted proceedings and appeared in Court on a range of matters including contractual disputes, trusts and probate, insolvency, aviation, shareholder disputes, directors’ duties, mis-selling claims and financial services disputes.
She regularly appears in the High Court and County Court on applications, interlocutory hearings, petitions and trials. She has also been instructed in relation to proceedings in several offshore jurisdictions including the Cayman Islands, Jersey, the BVI, Anguilla and the DIFC relating in particular to trusts and funds.
More details of Erin’s experience in the practice areas in which Chambers specialises can be found under the headings below.
Prior to being called to the Bar, Erin was a solicitor in the corporate department of leading international law firm Herbert Smith, which gave her excellent experience in company law, corporate structures, issues surrounding directors’ duties, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and commercial contracts. She worked on a range of transactions, from international deals to small private acquisitions. This transactional experience gives her a valuable insight into the type of contentious issues which may arise from such transactions and how these can be resolved. Erin assisted on large international transactions as a corporate solicitor and was regularly required to coordinate teams of solicitors in various off-shore jurisdictions.
Erin has twice been seconded to the contentious trusts department of leading law firms.
