  • Recommendations

    “Henrietta was very clear on what was where, preliminary issues etc.  Her meticulous preparation was self-evident in the trial, she knew the case and the bundle like the back of her hand and her cross examination was clear, precise, well-mannered and cognisant of the judge.  The successful outcome spoke for itself.  She was tenacious in pursuing difficult points.

    To me, Henrietta’s performance from the outset is an exemplar and she is a credit to chambers.  She has just the right attitude; her focus was on the case, she was not hurried or watching the clock and she had an eye on customer service.  As for her abilities as counsel, this is someone who knew the law well, who had clearly read the papers meticulously despite the inadequacies of fast track fixed costs, and whose trial strategy and submissions were so well thought out.  She was against counsel twice her call but was far more polished, exuded confidence and was not phased by anything thrown at her.  Advocacy that was a pleasure to watch.

    Henrietta is someone who clearly has the ability to handle complex trials.  Her approach to trial preparation clearly lends itself to managing voluminous papers, complex issues and multiple issues whilst maintaining a clear overall game plan.  I am sure she will go very far.”
