Lisa is Client Services Director for our offices in Carlisle, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Teesside and York.

Lisa has vast experience in Dispute Resolution - pursuing and defending claims for breaches of contract, covenant, warranty, confidentiality, finance agreements and directors’ fiduciary duties.  She resolves shareholder and partnership disputes, intellectual property infringements and reputation management.  She has extensive experience in resolving commercial fraud cases and in the use of injunctions and search and seize orders to contain data breaches, enforce restraint of trade agreements and recover confidential information.

Lisa is an advocate at court and but also supports settlement efforts outside of litigation through mediation, arbitration, early neutral evaluation and adjudication.

Recent examples of how Lisa has supported clients include:

  • supervising the execution of a search and seizure injunction over a two day period to recover assets in a long-running £10 million bankruptcy claim;
  • defending a multi-million pound trade mark action brought by an international blue chip company against individuals operating in the telecoms sector;
  • obtaining an injunction for the return of confidential data and the cessation of competing activities by a former employee on behalf of a multi-million pound media company; and
  • settling a long-running, high profile shareholder dispute involving allegations of commercial fraud where all those involved needed absolute confidentiality to avoid reputational damage.
