Nikola is an Associate in Quinn Emanuel’s London office specialising in commercial dispute resolution with a particular focus on infrastructure, construction and energy disputes. She has a wealth of experience advising clients on highly technical and high-value cases, including acting for clients in several successful English High Court proceedings, together with a range of alternative dispute resolution processes. Nikola has additional experience in matters of a transactional and non-contentious nature (including health, safety, environmental and regulatory issues) and has worked in both private practice and in-house roles. This additional breadth of experience equips her with the knowledge and perspective to quickly get to grips with the technical and commercial details of any case. Prior to joining Quinn Emanuel, Nikola worked at top tier international construction and energy firms.
