Nadia Osborne

Senior Associate

I specialise in general commercial litigation and contentious insolvency law. I have particular experience in dealing with cross-jurisdictional disputes and group actions.


I have expertise in a wide range of general commercial litigation matters. As a generalist, my work covers various practices and substantive areas, including complex commercial litigation, both domestic and multi-jurisdictional. My experience spans cases that have gone to trial (in England and Iceland) to applications for injunctive relief or other interlocutory relief. I also have experience in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution. I have a particular interest in disputes involving an international element and working with foreign counsel.

In addition, I have extensive experience in cross-border insolvency and represent creditors and debtors in an insolvency context.

I act on behalf of a range of English and international registered companies / corporations as well as high net worth individuals. I analyse a client’s issues and priorities so that my work is tied to their strategic goals. My priority is to assist clients in obtaining the best results in litigation.

Outside of work, I like to stay active, go to the theatre and travel. I am also a history enthusiast.
