About Me

Sophie is an experienced dispute resolution lawyer who works for Shakespeare Martineau LLP, a top 50 full service law firm with offices across the Midlands and London. 

Financial Disputes

Sophie specialises in complex and high value disputes. Her particular interests are financial disputes regarding hedging products, as well as claims for injunctive relief.

Sophie is part of Shakespeare Martineau LLP's financial disputes team who advise and act for a number of individuals and businesses against financial institutions (to include brokers) regarding complex hedging strategies such as interest rate or FX/Forex Hedging products. 

Most often our clients do not fully understand the implications of the complex hedging arrangements that they have entered into. This can have disastrous financial consequences, particularly following the impact on the economy (such as the falling value in the pound) due to Brexit.
