About me

Eleanor studied law at Durham University before training at shipping litigation firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) and qualifying as a solicitor in 2008.

She spent several years with HFW, specialising in contractual shipping claims, personal injury and package travel. She was also responsible for running a pro bono clinic in south London advising on small claims, landlord and tenant, and employment matters. After taking a break to run her own editorial business, editing academic law and business texts, she returned to law in 2020 when she joined the Leeds Day litigation team.

Outside law, Eleanor is a keen quizzer and singer, singing with a local choir and performing with the VAMPS of St Neots musical theatre group.

About my work

Eleanor specialises in all aspects of personal injury and civil/commercial litigation, particularly contract disputes and business claims, including cross-border litigation and travel claims. She has extensive experience of commercial arbitration and mediation as alternative methods of resolving disputes.
