Profil complet

Jane joined Clyde & Co in 1974 and has been a partner for over 35 years. She specialises in dispute resolution in all its forms; she has extensive experience of Arbitration (whether by contractual agreement with reference to established Rules or organisations or on an ad hoc basis) and Litigation whether in the UK or internationally.

She has further been engaged by clients in the role of  "Settlement Counsel" where existing representatives have been unable to extract clients from protracted and complex arbitration/litigation and a more commercial approach is needed.

Her main areas of expertise are reinsurance and insurance (marine, non-marine and aviation) but she now also deals with major international contractual disputes arising out of trading relationships, construction projects and finance matters. Jane has dealt with a wide range of other disputes, frequently of a complex, cross-border or multi-party nature, including those originating in the sectors of financial services, business contracts, employment, lender liability, professional liability, marine/aviation contractual disputes, partnership/shareholder/joint venture issues and transportation.
