Hannah has a broad commercial practice in line with Chambers' profile. She has experience in a variety of areas including banking, commercial contracts, financial services (including PPI), consumer credit, company, insolvency, international arbitration and insurance.
Hannah is regularly instructed as sole advocate in banking and financial disputes in the County Courts, has appeared in opposition to QCs on interlocutory applications and has represented clients at appeal hearings. She has also been instructed as junior counsel in larger commercial teams.
Hannah recently formed part of a four-member counsel team instructed to represent the defendant in a case where declarations had been sought as to the proper interpretation of terms in a shareholders’ agreement.
In 2017 Hannah jointly advised on the application of the “unfair relationship” provisions in the Consumer Credit Act, and on the construction of an EPC contract in a dispute over defects in an energy plant. More recently, in another construction law matter, Hannah solely advised on the merits of professional negligence claims to be brought against a civil engineering firm.
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 and was often required to interpret complex construction contracts.
At Keating, Hannah developed an understanding of adjudication, arbitration 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 (including for use in international conferences) and contributed to the update of Keating’s flagship book ‘Keating on Construction Contracts’. She also performed discrete research tasks such as reviewing and interpreting changes to the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and other regulatory changes.
