Practice Summary

Anna Boase has been recommended as a "leading junior" by The Legal 500 (in Commercial Litigation) and ranked among the top juniors by Chambers and Partners (in Commercial Dispute Resolution).

Anna Boase has a broad practice in commercial litigation.  She is a team player, who prides herself on careful attention to legal and factual detail.  Her practice includes high profile and high value cases in which she is instructed as a member of a silk-led team, as well as a diverse range of matters in which she appears as sole counsel or with a more junior barrister.  She also sits as an arbitrator.

Anna is described as “very bright, hardworking junior and approachable” (The Legal 500) and as “A hard-working and technically accomplished junior who peers say is “unflappable” when on her feet” (Chambers & Partners). The Chambers UK Bar Guide notes that her strengths include “a winning manner both with clients and in court”, and that she is “clever, but also incredibly obliging and productive”.  Also that top law firms praised her eye for detail and analytical ability.

Identified as a "Future Star at the Bar" by Legal Week, she was described as a commercial specialist who "is never fazed by anything". Noted for her Commercial Court work as a junior and for her financial services practice, solicitors said of her "She is always in control and does everything to perfection".

Notable recent work includes representing News International in the Leveson Inquiry, acting for the Financial Conduct Authority in defending allegations of misfeasance in public office and defending high value claims brought by Formula One.
