Emily Gillett

Emily is an experienced litigator, who is regularly involved in large and complex multi-jurisdictional litigation, particularly in the spheres of commercial fraud and asset recovery. Prior to joining Lipman Karas, Emily practised as a barrister in London for over a decade, most latterly from Erskine Chambers. In addition to her experience of a wide variety of urgent interlocutory applications and arbitration work, Emily has a wealth of trial experience, not least acting as junior counsel in a year-long trial in the Cayman Islands. Emily also has considerable appeal experience, including appearing as junior counsel for the appellant in a 20-day appeal.

As a litigator, Emily brings a combination of strategic foresight, rigorous forensic analytical skills and an appreciation of the dynamics of the courtroom to the cases she works on.

After four years in practice, Emily was identified as 1 of 10 Stars of the Bar under 10 years’ call by Legal Week and in more recent years Emily’s work at the Bar earned her recognition in the Chambers and Partners Bar directory, in both their UK and Global editions.
