Annabelle joined South Square as a tenant in October 2021.

Annabelle accepts instructions in Chambers’ core areas of practice, including corporate restructuring and insolvency, offshore litigation, company law, banking and finance work and commercial litigation and arbitration.

Annabelle recently acted for the liquidators of Abraaj Holdings (led by Tom Smith KC) in a high-profile dispute in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands arising out of the well-publicised collapse of the Abraaj Group, one of the world’s largest private equity emerging market investors, in their claims that payments in the sum of over $200million made to funds within the Group were voidable preferences or dispositions of property at an undervalue.

Annabelle is also developing a strong restructuring practice, having most recently acted as junior counsel to the plan company in the landmark Adler restructuring plan (Re AGPS Bondco PLC) before the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

During pupillage, Annabelle assisted on a broad variety of matters spanning Chambers’ practice areas including the subordinated debt litigation arising out the collapse of Lehman Brothers (Re Lehman Brothers Holdings PLC (in administration)), several schemes of arrangement and restructuring plans (for example, Re Smile Telecoms Holdings ltd and Re Steinhoff International Holdings NV) and litigation concerning the reflective loss principle in relation to a Ponzi scheme. Annabelle also assisted on a number of offshore matters, including the appointment of provisional liquidators and privilege issues in the British Virgin Islands.

Annabelle holds a First Class degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, receiving an Academic Exhibition and Scholarship.
