Expertise and Highlights

Throughout my legal career, I have been lucky enough to have obtained vast experience in Dispute Resolution, Rural and Sport Law matters.

I have previously worked with national governing bodies, private individuals, professionals, business owners, World Class athletes, competitors at all levels and equine breeders on a variety of matters. Ruth has assisted with Anti-Doping hearings at Sport Resolutions UK in London and a variety of other disciplinary tribunal matters and selection disputes within the Sports Law sector.

Other key matters I have had the pleasure of dealing with are:

  • Post Office historic shortfall claims
  • Multi-million-pound pension claims
  • Possession matters
  • Inheritance Act claims
  • Acting on behalf of developers and management companies in respect of disrepair claims involving construction disputes
  • Ownership disputes concerning agricultural land,
  • Partnership disputes
  • Adverse Possession and Land Tribunal matters
  • Boundary disputes
  • Large-value debt recovery matters

I come to Mezzle having headed up a litigation team at my previous firm in addition to also having been the Head of Equine within the Dispute Resolution team in top 100 law firm prior to that due to my specialism in equestrian and sporting matters. I decided to set up my own legal consultancy specialising in litigation, particularly rural and property matters, given the wealth of experience that I can offer clients.

Key areas:

  • Property Litigation
  • Agricultural Property disputes
  • Equine Disputes
  • Debt recovery
  • Contentious Probate
  • Contract Disputes
  • Consumer Rights
  • Professional Negligence
