She advised clients in the board room faced with business-critical disputes, supported financial institutions through the choppy waters following the collapse of Lehman, worked with property developers seeking to maximise asset value, landlords managing their portfolios and company directors struggling with the solvency of their company. Mandy’s clients included banks (such as HSBC, Lehman and RBS), property and infrastructure companies (such as Network Rail, Canary Wharf and Land Securities), Insurers and investors (such as Legal and General), private equity vehicles (such as Blackstone, CVC Capital Partners and KKR), high net worth individuals and sovereign wealth funds (such as the Qatari Investment Authority).
