Vanessa Wilkinson, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution

Vanessa Wilkinson, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution, Fieldfisher

I am an senior associate in the Dispute Resolution group dealing with a broad range of dispute across various sectors.

I have experience of dealing with banking and financial disputes, professional negligence claims, shareholder actions and general contractual disputes and increasingly contentious regulatory matters and international financial sanctions.

I have been involved in financial mis-selling claims involving both major banks and smaller financial institutions as well as claims arising from negligent advice, including in relation to the Madoff fraud. I deal with regulatory issues and disputes across a variety of sectors from matters arising in connection with the Financial Conduct Authority to acting for retail clients subject to investigations for breaches of environmental health regulations, for example.

I advise clients in connection with economic sanctions matters including advising on the impact of economic sanctions and making successful challenges against the European Council to obtain the delisting of both high net worth individuals and corporate entities subject to sanctions.

I am a member of the London Solicitor Litigation Association (LSLA).

Outside of work, I have a love of travelling and exploring new places. When not travelling I can be found planning my next adventure, visiting the latest art exhibition or playing my clarinet and saxophone.
