Her practice at the commercial bar was based on the key areas of shipping, reinsurance and international trade but evolved to include banking, finance and company disputes and other matters with a chancery flavour.
She was appointed as a Recorder on the Midland Circuit and QC in 2001 and became a Deputy High Court Judge in 2005. She was appointed as a High Court Judge in 2013. She is the co-author of The Law of Guarantees (7th edn 2015) and has contributed to a book on international arbitration in Singapore.
