As a commercial litigator, Beth has worked on a wide variety of commercial disputes. Her particular concentration lies in civil fraud, and she has recently been involved with high profile and fast paced proceedings. These proceedings have involved policing and defending a freezing order against the defendant and various third parties, executing a search order at several locations and obtaining disclosure orders and prohibitory and mandatory injunctions. Beth is regularly before the court and her work often involves reacting to urgent developments in time pressured situations and seeking appropriate injunction relief to obtain the best results for her clients.
In addition to her civil fraud work, Beth has also advised clients in connection with internal bribery and corruption investigations, often with an international focus, and brought proceedings on behalf of various insolvency practitioners. Beth also takes a keen interest in the firm's pro bono practice.
