Julia is developing a broad commercial practice in line with 7KBW’s profile. As a pupil she gained experience across a wide range of commercial disputes (including commodities, construction, energy and natural resources, civil fraud, injunctions, insurance, international arbitration, jurisdiction / conflict of laws, professional negligence and shipping) with a particular emphasis on insurance and international arbitration. She accepts instructions as junior counsel and on her own in all 7KBW’s specialist areas.
Julia’s current led work includes acting as junior counsel in a five-week Commercial Court trial of a marine insurance dispute, and she is instructed as part of the team acting for one of the defendants in a fraud claim by the Danish revenue authorities, valued at more than £1 billion. She has also appeared as sole counsel in the County Court since joining Chambers.
Julia is a member of the Government’s Junior Junior scheme.
Before being called to the Bar, Julia read Classics at Magdalen College, Oxford where she achieved a First in both Honour Moderations and Finals. She subsequently attained a Senior Status degree in Law at St John’s College, Cambridge.
