Nicola joined Grosvenor Law in 2014, having spent ten years practising at the English independent Bar where she appeared regularly in Court, including before the Privy Council.

Nicola specialises in complex commercial disputes, particularly those involving Worldwide Freezing Orders and other forms of injunction (about which she also regularly speaks) and in restrictive covenant disputes, company breakdown and insolvency cases.  She also has a background in commercial cases with a criminal aspect, and acts in fraud and breach of trust cases, and in private prosecutions.  Many of her cases have several of these elements, involve issues of privacy and reputation, or are also cross-jurisdictional disputes.  Nicola’s approach is practical, strategic and detail oriented; she draws on her years as a practising barrister to distil large volumes of information quickly, and works closely with clients towards a commercial and focussed case strategy.

Nicola is also called to the Bar in The Bahamas, and has advised in relation to Bahamian law.  She studied at Harvard, the LSE, and Queen Mary, and speaks Swiss German and French.  Nicola is a member of the Chancery Bar Association, INSOL and the Employment Law Association.
