Emma Williams - Commercial Litigation

Emma is dedicated to providing a first class service. She understands that all clients deserve nothing less. Emma graduated from the University of Bristol with the best first class degree in her year and received the Savage Prize for best overall performance. 

Emma handles a wide range of commercial litigation ranging from representing the interests of multi-national companies to sole traders. Emma is well-versed in contractual disputes across numerous industries, including the construction industry. She understands the commercial approach required in such litigation and the importance of leveraging as strong a position as possible for her clients.

In addition to appearing in court, Emma drafts pleadings and advice in matters as broad as, but certainly not limited to, construction disputes, professional negligence, breach of contract, breach of restrictive covenants, passing off and simple debt claims. She understands the interdisciplinary nature of commercial litigation and its relation to, for instance, insolvency law. 

Emma is happy to represent clients at mediation. 

Emma looks forward to receiving instructions across the breath of commercial litigation.
