She is a busy junior who continues to build her mixed practice, and she is well-placed to act in or assist with, disputes engaging both areas of law. Her cross-over specialisms include employee / shareholder competition and  shareholder / partnership disputes.

Lottie has already been instructed as junior counsel in complex, multi-million pound disputes in the High Court and Employment Tribunal. She is often called upon to assist in cases where proceedings are running concurrently in the Tribunal and Civil Courts.

Lottie has already appeared successfully before the EAT and the High Court.

Lottie is passionate about Pro Bono work. She is currently the Western Circuit’s Pro Bono representative and a member of Advocate, the Bristol Pro Bono Group and the Hampshire Pro Bono Group. She was recently shortlisted as a finalist for Advocate’s ‘Young Pro Bono Barrister of the Year’ award at Advocate’s national pro bono awards.

Lottie enjoys road cycling and mountain biking, having competed in the sport since the age of 11. In 2014, she won the Junior Women’s National Downhill Mountain Biking championships.

Her respondent clients include Police Forces, a Premiership rugby team, local government, blue chip firms including John Lewis plc, and national recruitment agencies.

Lottie has already appeared, successfully, before the EAT.
