Harriet has a busy commercial practice in which she regularly appears on behalf of Claimants and Defendants. Her commercial practice encompasses contractual disputes, debt recovery, tort, trusts and equitable relief.

Across those practice areas, Harriet’s recent work has included:

  • Fast track trials involving various matters such as disputed workmanship in relation to residential building works and disputed oral loan agreements.
  • A variety of interim applications including applications for strike out/summary judgment, applications for security for costs, specific disclosure and pre-action disclosure applications.
  • Interim hearings including CMCs and CCMCs.

Harriet recently formed part of a team of Barristers who travelled to Brazil to assist in pleading claims for a class action which has been filed in the High Court in Liverpool by SPG Law on behalf of around 200,000 individuals, 25 municipal governments, 700 businesses, a Catholic archdiocese and members of the Krenak indigenous community.

Harriet adopts a proactive approach to work and is happy to provide informal advice as cases progress. Harriet welcomes contact by email or phone.
