Julia is developing a broad commercial practice in line with 7KBW’s profile, with a particular emphasis on insurance, jurisdiction / conflict of laws, shipping, civil fraud, commodities, professional negligence and international arbitration. She accepts instructions as junior counsel and on her own in all of 7KBW’s specialist areas.
Julia’s recent led work includes acting for the successful claimant in ABN Amro Bank v RSA  EWHC 442 (Comm), the five-week Commercial Court trial of a £33.5 million claim against the bank’s marine cargo underwriters and brokers (led by Rebecca Sabben-Clare QC and Benjamin Parker).
Current instructions include acting as junior counsel, led by Keir Howie, for a group of alleged fraud defendants in SKAT v Solo Capital Partners LLP and others, a fraud claim by the Danish revenue authorities valued at more than £1 billion.
Julia regularly appears as sole counsel in the County Court and she has recently spent time on secondment at a specialist London shipping firm. She is also 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.
