Tracy England

Senior Associate Solicitor, Head of Dispute Resolution

Whoever the client and whatever the case, I strive to achieve a good result for my clients. I provide a professional and personal service ensuring that there is a balanced outcome. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217359.

I am a senior associate solicitor and lead the dispute resolution team in Colchester.

I have over 25 years’ experience working within the dispute resolution team and I deal with a range of disputes acting for both claimant and defendant. The types of disputes I advise on include breach of contract claims, property disputes, claims for negligence and professional negligence.

The value of the disputes are varied from a straight forward breach of contract claim to a complex and technical dispute involving negligence.

As well as advising on general disputes, I have an interest in contentious insolvency which involves me acting for bankrupts, directors of companies in liquidation and insolvency practitioners pursuing claims against directors and third parties.

An example of the types of claims I deal with include misfeasance claims against directors, recovering directors’ overdrawn loan accounts, S127 claims, applying for and defending winding up petitions, seeking annulments of bankruptcy and negotiating settlement with the trustee in bankruptcy to buy out their interest in the bankrupt’s property.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, travelling and attempting the occasional challenging jigsaw puzzle.
