Practice notes

Isabelle is a Principal Associate in our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution group, dealing with public law matters, as well as general contractual and tortious disputes. Isabelle is a member of Eversheds' Inquiries and Investigations team.

Isabelle specialises in acting for public inquiries, in managing, collating and assessing all evidence for such inquiries, as well as dealing with procedural/public law issues that arise.   Isabelle's current work in the field includes acting for the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry, on which Eversheds are engaged as Solicitor to the Inquiry, and acting on behalf of the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime in the Leveson Inquiry (phone hacking).
 
Isabelle's other area of expertise is in advising clients in relation to potential, threatened or actual regulatory investigations, with particular experience of advising clients in the energy sector.  Isabelle is currently advising a number or major energy clients in relation to the new Government introduced Green Deal and ECO Scheme and the recent changes to Ofgem's enforcement guidelines.

Isabelle's core litigation work is a mix of commercial disputes, including breach of contract claims, warranty claims, professional negligence and misrepresentation. Isabelle's recent experience includes assisting a client defending and counterclaiming a substantial breach of contract claim by an international exporter, advising in relation to an earn out dispute and advising on a search and seizure order and freezing injunction.
