Her cases have featured in The Lawyer’s top 20 cases of the year and she has featured on their list of the UK’s most influential and inspirational lawyers for her successes “in billion dollar, high profile, politically sensitive and often market-shaping arbitration cases and related court trials.” An accomplished advocate, she has appeared in over 100 cases, including in the UK Supreme Court.

Ms. Lamb’s role includes advising boards and investment committees on corporate integrity, principles of responsible investment, sustainability, and the interaction between business and human rights.
