Associate | London
Secretary Christine Woodroffe
Tessa is an associate in the international arbitration team, which is regularly instructed on complex international commercial and investment arbitration disputes and public international law cases.
She trained at Withers, gaining exposure to a wide range of our practice areas including corporate; trusts, estate and inheritance disputes and private client and tax.
In a 'previous life', Tessa spent time in an Austrian law firm and a London-based boutique corporate consultancy company focusing on the Nordic market. She then worked in NGOs and even founded her own Vienna-based NGO for strategic human rights litigation with some former colleagues - a novelty in the Austrian legal industry! In 2018, Tessa negotiated on behalf of the European Union during the 73rd UN General Assembly in New York prior to joining Withers in 2019.
