Harriet specialises in commercial litigation and arbitration, with a particular focus on insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes in which she represents policyholders.
I am a commercial litigator with a particular focus on representing policyholders in coverage disputes against insurers. Over the past decade, I have helped clients ranging from private individuals to global organisations to successfully recover losses from insurers under a range of policies including professional indemnity, product liability/recall, D&O, property, political and credit risk. I have a real interest in the life sciences and pharmaceutical sector, having spent six months working in-house at a global pharmaceutical company. The COVID-19 pandemic and recent “FCA Test Case” has shone a light on some of the issues with the UK insurance industry’s approach to paying claims and I look forward to working with my clients to ensure they recover what they are owed in an ever hardening insurance market.
As well as representing clients the High Court and Court of Appeal, I am a great fan of arbitration as an alternative means of dispute resolution and have acted in both ad hoc and institutional arbitrations, particularly those governed by the LCIA, ICC and SCC Rules.
Outside of work I am mum to a determined toddler who could probably hold her own in the Supreme Court.
