Meet Fiona Blakeborough, Hillyer McKeown Head of Commercial Litigation

Disputes can arise at any time, often unexpectedly, and often causing significant disruption to the day to day management of your business, or personal life.

The specialists in our team are experienced in dealing with a wide range of disputes on behalf of businesses and individuals, acting quickly to resolve disputes providing pragmatic, commercial advice to avoid litigation where possible. We are particularly adept at handling complex disputes.

I have over 15 years’ experience acting for large commercial companies, small and medium sized businesses (SMEs), owner managed businesses, local authorities/public sector bodies and individuals in relation to a wide variety of disputes and ‘heavyweight’ commercial litigation including:

  • complex commercial contract claims
  • company/shareholder disputes
  • banking litigation
  • restrictive covenant actions
  • IT disputes
  • negligence claims
  • property litigation
  • retention of title claims
  • intellectual property
  • corporate and personal insolvency
  • contentious probate.

Experienced in complex litigation

I have conducted litigation at all levels from County Court to Supreme Court level, and am recommended in the prestigious Legal 500 publication for my ‘excellent litigation management’.  I am also experienced in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation, and am committed to finding cost-effective solutions for clients to resolve disputes as quickly as possible.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my two daughters.
