Sandra’s dispute experience covers disputes in a wide range of areas including for example sale and purchase of goods, board liability, post M&A issues, shareholder disputes, life science, loan agreements, insurance, damages claims, employment, trade secrets and professional liability.

“She has a good ability to quickly review the case and tell us in an honest way what risks we have. She helps us argue the case and is honest if we have a bad case. She tells us what could lead to improvement in the business. There is nothing I feel she could improve on.”
Chambers 2022
