Joanne Wicks QC talks Franses, EMA and life at the property bar

EG's deputy legal editor Jess Harrold meets with leading property law silk Joanne Wicks QC to discuss her highly successful career - including her recent high-profile courtroom victories in two of the most significant cases of recent years.

Wicks shares her thoughts on the impact of S Franses Ltd v Cavendish Hotel (London) Ltd [2018] UKSC 62; [2019] EGLR 4 in the landlord and tenant sphere; and also on Canary Wharf (BP4) T1 Ltd v European Medicines Agency [2019] EWHC 335 Ch; [2019] EGLR 17 - the Brexit frustration case.

In addition, she discusses what drives her as a barrister, and what it is like to win - and lose - a big case. Plus, Wicks addresses her mediation work, her role as chair of the Property Bar Association - and what she gets up to in her free time.
