Jessica-Leigh Knowles, Solicitor, Dispute Resolution, Fieldfisher

I am a Solicitor in Fieldfisher's Dispute Resolution team. I work on a broad range of commercial disputes, acting for both Claimants and Defendants. I have broad High Court experience, including Chancery, Queen's Bench, Commercial and Technology and Construction Court.

I have experience with breach of contract claims, banking and finance disputes, civil fraud, professional negligence, construction disputes, shareholder disputes and insolvency.

Recent experience includes defending allegations of Missing-Trader Intra-Community (MTIC) Fraud involving large cross-border commodity transactions, mediating and settling a trade/supplier dispute, a professional negligence claim against an investment services firm involving film finance tax schemes, a claim based on fraudulent misrepresentation, and defending an indemnity/contribution claim involving the design and construction of industrial plant.

I have a strong background in financial services having previously worked for a number of years for an international custodian of funds, and for a large investment firm prior to joining Fieldfisher. I am fluent in French having minored in French Studies during my undergraduate degree and having studied in France.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling, keeping fit and exploring different types of cuisine.
