Jelena Tosic, Solicitor, Fieldfisher

I am a solicitor in Dispute Resolution in our London office.

I deal with general commercial disputes. Although the team used to be called "Commercial Litigation", we find solutions for problems that arise between businesses and/or in a commercial setting.

I have been working on international construction arbitration for a long standing client.  The dispute concerns a high value construction project, under FIDIC rules and the arbitration is governed by the ICC Rules.  We secured an interim award in our client's favour for the full sum sough from the opponent, which was a great win.

I worked on preparing an interim injunction to prevent one of our client's former senior board members from continuing with his role as the president of the rival company and to stop him from revealing confidential information.

It is important to understand your client's needs and the commercial environment your client operates in as I found that if you can put yourself in your client's shoes you are more likely to explore the avenues that are not as obvious when you only have your legal hat on.

I have experience in dealing with settlement agreements, advising on conflict of laws and jurisdiction and have dealt with litigation funding.

I also have experience in regulatory matters and claims for libel, slander, defamation and negligence.
