background and expertise
Jennifer joined 9BR Chambers in October 2022. During her first six months of pupillage, she was supervised by Max Hardy and Ruth Becker. Jennifer assisted in the preparation of both prosecution and defence cases involving sexual offences, serious violence and drugs offences.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Jennifer gained several years’ experience as a paralegal in criminal and regulatory law firms. She assisted in the prosecution and defence of several fraud cases brought by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Trading Standards and HMRC. These were often high value and complex frauds over a substantial period of time.
As a paralegal, Jennifer specialised in regulatory enforcement and professional discipline matters. She assisted with all aspects, including registration and fitness to practice proceedings. Jennifer successfully made written representations against notices to vary or cancel registration. These often involved breaches of professional standards including allegations of misconduct and/or dishonesty.
Jennifer also has experience as an advocate, having successfully represented numerous claimants in breach of contract claims in the Civil Courts.
Jennifer was awarded the Baron Dr Ver Heyden de Lancey academic prize in 2019, an award granted for academic achievement by Middle Temple Inn of Court.
