Natalie Roberts

Senior Commercial Litigation Solicitor

Get in touch

Natalie has developed a reputation for advising clients in relation to complex, high value and multi-jurisdictional construction and commercial disputes, with extensive experience in international arbitration, commercial and criminal litigation, investigations and white-collar crime. More recently Natalie worked in-house for a local authority. Before her career in law, Natalie was a central member of a small start-up company so appreciates the challenges similar businesses face.  

Nothing brings me greater satisfaction than offering commercially focused, results-driven advice to my clients. From startups to multinationals and High Net Worth individuals, I've steered each through their disputes, employing my extensive experience in international arbitration and court proceedings when an early resolution can’t be achieved.

Natalie has provided pragmatic legal advice to clients in a variety of sectors, including real estate, construction, finance, telecommunications, energy and hospitality.  

Natalie trained at DLA Piper where she remained until 2020.  Throughout her time practising in the UK and the Middle East, Natalie developed excellent relationships with clients and colleagues from all over the globe. She is a personable, motivated, organised and professional person.  

Career highlights include: 

Representing two prominent Indian real estate entrepreneurs in an LCIA India arbitration involving claims totalling USD1 billion, relating to several large-scale real estate projects in India, and interests in companies incorporated in the UK, British Virgin Islands and Mauritius. This arbitration, seated in New Delhi, was one of the first arbitrations to be administered by the LCIA India, and the first to proceed to final hearing.

  • Representing a prominent Indian real estate entrepreneur in a USD530 million dispute involving parallel proceedings in the London Commercial Court and an LCIA arbitration seated in Singapore. 
  • Advising a Middle East contractor in relation to a series of disputes and arbitrations arising from the construction of a university in Abu Dhabi. 
  • Acting for a large African bank in USD300m debt recovery proceedings against a corporate guarantor. 
  • Representing a leading regional telecommunications company in a USD75 million financial dispute against a prominent regional real estate developer. 
  • Representing a senior employee of a global telecommunications giant in a U.S. Department of Justice investigation into illegal payments, with a favourable resolution. 
  • Advising a financial services provider in respect of an internal investigation concerning allegations of improper conduct and regulatory issues. 

Natalie is married with two children. She enjoys cooking for friends and family, then walking off the calories around her local Welsh hills with her labrador, Honey.
