Francesca is noted for her sense of humour and friendly down to earth approach to clients. She is particularly noted for her advocacy skills and forensic approach to cross examination as well as an “excellent grasp of complex facts”[legal 500-2013] It has also been said that she is ‘An extremely bright junior, with excellent cross-examination skills.’

Francesca fully recognises the public need to instruct barristers directly and welcomes this new way of working. In her view it is cost effective, easier than having two separate lawyers dealing with the same case and allows for a better and more in depth working relationship with the client.
