Emma’s many years of experience in providing litigation and dispute resolution services to the corporate sector, as well as her management qualifications (Emma has a Masters in Law and Management), means that she is commercially orientated and acutely aware of client’s commercial imperatives, as well as the need to effectively manage risk.
