About

Caroline is a Partner in the commercial disputes and fraud team, who has substantial experience in complex, high profile and multijurisdictional disputes, and financial crime investigations.  The disputes she acts on typically involve breaches of contract and  misrepresentations, tortious / wrongful acts, civil fraud and asset tracing, and / or allegations of bribery and corruption; and regularly involve the need for injunctive relief which she has great experience in obtaining.

By way of illustration, Caroline defended corporate clients in the $9 billion AHAB / SAAD in which she was granted limited admission to the Cayman bar. She successfully defended a former employee of a multi-national oil company from high-profile allegations of bribery and corruption in Nigeria before the Milan Court of Appeal. She is currently acting for an individual in connection with the SFO’s prosecution of GPT and others involving allegations of bribery and corruption allegedly occurring in the contracts to supply telecommunications equipment to the Saudi Arabian National Guard. And she is bringing proceedings on behalf of liquidators of various companies against a bank for fraudulent trading in assisting a VAT carousel fraud in the carbon credit market.

Caroline is also one of the founding members of the network of fraud and asset recovering practitioners, ACROSS Fraud, and is a regular conference speaker and thought leadership author on issues of fraud, asset recovery, bribery and corruption.

Caroline is admitted to practise in England and Wales.
