Nataliya has a busy practice in all areas of Chambers work. Nataliya is recognised for the thoroughness of her preparation and attention to detail. She is valued by professional and lay clients for her realistic and empathetic approach to challenging cases and the effectiveness of her advocacy.
Fluent in both Russian and Ukrainian and with a strong background in international law issues, Nataliya is very well placed to handle cases involving clients from these jurisdictions. Before coming to the Bar, Nataliya worked in the Hague for a number of international organisations, including the defence team of a defendant at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the legal department of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
Nataliya’s pupillage concludes in February 2019. Since joining Chambers in 2018 for her specialist family law pupillage, Nataliya has benefitted from a strong background in Children Act proceedings (both private and public law) after being supervised by Beryl Gilead, Mark McCluskey and Jane Gillespie. Nataliya is presently supervised by Matthew O’Grady and is undertaking a specialist financial remedy element of her pupillage.
As a pupil, Nataliya can be instructed in all areas of Chambers work to provide affordable and effective advice and representation, particularly to those with more modest means who might otherwise not be in a position to instruct counsel.
