Expressing her enthusiasm upon joining Foot Anstey, Sonya stated, "I'm delighted to join Foot Anstey's talented and forward-thinking team. I look forward to leveraging my expertise to propel the practice into the challenging regulatory landscape."

James Gliddon, Partner and Head of Banking and Lender Disputes at Foot Anstey, lauded Sonya's exceptional reputation and extensive experience. He emphasized her expertise in handling significant financial services regulatory investigations, enforcement proceedings, and advising on internal investigations and large-scale commercial disputes. Gliddon expressed confidence in Sonya's pivotal role in assisting regulated clients with risk management, investigations, and related litigation in light of the growing impact of regulatory bodies across sectors.
