We are delighted to announce the appointment of expert commercial litigator Nicola McKinney as a partner.

Nicola began her career as a defence advocate and has represented clients in the Crown Courts, Chancery and Commercial Courts, Employment Appeals Tribunal, and the Privy Council. She draws on an extensive multi-disciplinary background when working on the most complex cases, where there are often simultaneous criminal and civil disputes, coordinated legal and media attacks, and multiple proceedings ongoing in several jurisdictions.
