Hannah is building a broad commercial practice in line with Chambers' profile.
During pupillage, she worked under the supervision of Adam Kramer, Laura John and George McPherson. She assisted them and other members of Chambers in a variety of commercial matters in the County Courts, Commercial Court and the Supreme Court. She has gained experience in a variety of areas including banking, commercial contracts, financial services (including PPI), arbitration, consumer credit, civil fraud and insurance.
Hannah has been instructed as sole advocate in banking matters in the County Courts. For example, she represented a claimant bank at a small claims trial for a claim brought in restitution and is due to appear later this year at a preliminary hearing on behalf of a defendant bank.
Before joining 3VB, Hannah worked as a legal assistant at Keating Chambers. Whilst there, she dealt with complex legal issues (mainly contractual) arising in the construction sector. She developed an understanding of adjudication and international arbitration and conducted research for arbitrators operating in foreign jurisdictions such as Canada (Ontario), Trinidad and South Africa. She also drafted articles, conference papers and presentations for members of Chambers and contributed, in a research capacity, to the update of Keating’s flagship book ‘Keating on Construction Contracts’.
Hannah gained her first advocacy experience as a FRU volunteer in 2013, whilst studying for her LLB, and volunteered at the Battersea Legal Advice Centre during her BPTC year.
