How Sophie can help you

Sophie advises clients in all sectors on a wide range of contentious matters including:

  • Contentious commercial matters, including but not limited to breach of contract and debt or contractual disputes and debt collection, partnership disputes, professional negligence and agricultural disputes.
  • Contentious property matters, such as advising on boundary and easements disputes.
  • Contentious probate matters including will disputes and claims for financial provision under a will or intestacy.


Sophie acted for a national motor insurer in a complex case of a subrogated multi-track claim for a policyholder in respect of a concertina RTA involving six parties. The number of parties involved, and the various cross claims required a high level of organisational discipline. The claim was successfully brought to trial and resulted in a split liability decision against the fifth and sixth drivers. Our client was awarded its full costs of conduct, far exceeding the original claim.
