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 in all 7KBW’s specialist areas.
Julia’s current led work includes instructions to act as junior counsel in a five-week Commercial Court trial raising issues of insurance and professional negligence. She is also 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.
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.
