She has advised on boundary and maritime disputes, investment treaty arbitration, international commercial arbitration and “bet-the-company” disputes. Her clients include Fortune 100 and FTSE companies.

Bradfield has handled cases under the jurisdictions of the US, Australia, India, Sudan, China, Spain, Brazil, Nigeria and the U.A.E. She has worked in Malaysia, Croatia, Turkey, Barbados and Oman as well.

Before making the jump to Jones Day, Bradfield led the international arbitration practice at Dechert LLP in London. Her work in litigation and dispute resolution has earned her recognition in the Legal 500 and Global Arbitration Review 2020.
