Victoria was called to the Bar in 2016. She joined Chambers as a tenant in September 2017 after successfully completing her pupillage under the supervision of Simon Charles.

Victoria has appeared in the County Court and the High Court across a broad range of business and property matters, in the fields of contentious probate, contractual disputes, insolvency (both corporate and personal), as well as property disputes. Victoria is additionally developing a busy paper practice in these areas.

Victoria is also developing a practice in matters involving property and affairs in the Court of Protection.

Prior to joining Chambers, Victoria gained experience as a litigation paralegal in multiple jurisdictions. This included working at a Magic Circle law firm in London, where she worked on a large regulatory investigation by the US Department of Justice into a London-based bank, and an off-shore firm in Jersey where she gained experience of off-shore trust litigation in a complex cross-border trust claim.

Away from Chambers, Victoria is a keen hiker and at weekends can often be found at the top of a hill in the Peak District.
