Sills & Betteridge boosts Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution Team

Sills & Betteridge’s Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution Team has recently been boosted with the appointment of solicitor Rachael O’Sullivan.

Rachael deals with all aspects of litigation, including landlord and tenant disputes, land and boundary disputes, disputes between cohabitees under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, injunctions, committal applications, breach of contract and debt claims.

Prior to joining the firm, Lincoln-born Rachael attended university in Nottingham and then took a year out to travel around South-East Asia, and to teach English in Thailand. She returned to Lincoln and spent 6 years working in house for an insurance company in the private residential sector, dealing with landlord possession claims. She gained extensive advocacy experience representing clients at trials in the County Court.

Rachael then decided to resume her studies, starting her Legal Practice course in 2019 for which she obtained a distinction, fully qualifying as a solicitor last year. A keen advocate, Rachael will be undertaking a Higher Rights of Audience course in March 2023.

Senior partner, and head of Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Karen Bower-Brown said: “We are delighted that Rachael has joined our busy team. She complements the existing arrangements extremely well with her broad litigation knowledge and experience in representing both claimants and defendants. She has settled in well and I am looking forward to seeing her legal career progress with Sills & Betteridge.”

Rachael said: “I have known Karen and her colleagues in the litigation department professionally for some time, and always admired the pragmatic approach they take to achieve the best outcomes for their clients. I am very fortunate to work in a team which deals with such a wide range of commercial and civil dispute matters and know I will benefit greatly from their support and mentorship.”

Rachael will be based at Lincoln but will handle cases across the wider Lincolnshire area, Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
