Gemma is an Associate in the Commercial Disputes team, based in our Dubai office.

Gemma recently relocated from our finance disputes team in London where she worked for a wide range of clients but most regularly for a number of financial institutions. She has been involved in complex, high value disputes for major UK banks and has also worked on multi-jurisdictional investigations by UK authorities for corporate clients. 

Gemma also completed an 11 month secondment at a UK retail bank, with a focus on dealing with claims alleging mis-selling of interest rate hedging products. 

Since moving to Dubai at the beginning of 2022, Gemma has been heavily involved in both litigation (in the DIFC and ADGM courts) and arbitration matters. 

Most notably, Gemma’s recent experience includes:

  • acting for a financial institution in defending a multi-billion USD fraudulent trading claim;
  • advising an Abu Dhabi based company on its rights of termination under a management services agreement; and preparing to initiate arbitration proceedings in a debt recovery matter.
