She has appeared in high profile cases at all levels, including three times as a junior in the Supreme Court (most recently in Lehman Brothers Waterfall I) and twice as sole counsel in the Court of Appeal.

Charlotte is recommended for restructuring and insolvency in Chambers & Partners 2018 where she is described as “an impressive operator” and “singled out as a junior who is well equipped to handle sophisticated cases”.  She is praised for being “fantastic technically” whilst having “a commercial approach”.  Her advocacy is “very good” and “very persuasive”.  Who’s Who Legal 2018 describes Charlotte as “a rising star”.

In February 2017 Charlotte was appointed to the Attorney General’s Panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown (C Panel).
