Jessica Whooley LLB (Hons)

Solicitor

I am a solicitor in our Legal 500-rated dispute resolution & litigation team.

I have experience assisting individuals, both claimants and defendants, on a wide range of disputes including contract, property and professional negligence disputes, with a specialism in inheritance and trust disputes.

I take the time to listen to my client’s concerns and provide sensible and pragmatic advice in an uncomplicated way. I am focused on seeking to understand the claim at an early stage to identify the strengths and weaknesses quickly. I can then focus on finding a strategy which will seek to achieve my clients aims at the earliest possible opportunity.
