About Justine Soutter
14 years’ PQE
I lead the Dispute Resolution and Employment Group which deals with a wide range of disputes. I have a wealth of experience in private and public law.
I started my career working for a Legal 500 ranked City firm advising companies, commercial landlords and high net worth individuals. In 2013, after having my family, I joined the in-house legal team at the Kent County Council where I dealt with high profile, politically sensitive disputes. I then joined Invicta Law in 2017.
My main practice involves advising on complex disputes of all kinds, including highways and property disputes and insolvency.
I am a tenacious litigator and a keen advocate; however, I know that it is often better for clients to resolve their disputes outside of court.
I help clients to resolve their disputes through mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution as well through skilful negotiation.
I understand that the majority of clients want a speedy commercial solution to their dispute and to maintain control from a financial point of view.
With this in mind, I feel it’s important to ensure each client feels involved and make it a priority to minimise the stress associated with unresolved disputes throughout each case.
I particularly enjoy my work as it allows me to find simple solutions for complicated problems. I strive to make the resolution process as quick and easy as possible. I take a very commercial approach to my clients’ problems and deal with them in the same way that I would wish to be dealt with myself.
