Annabel Treadgold's practice focuses on multijurisdictional commercial litigation and arbitration, with an emphasis on complex civil fraud matters, and disputes arising out of the energy, resources, and construction sectors. The Legal 500 (2022) describes her as "excellent," a "great tactician," and a leading "next generation partner" in commercial litigation. And Chambers (2022) says she has "great attention to detail and is willing to give you an opinion that you can be confident is backed up by her knowledge of the matter."
Annabel's recent civil fraud experience includes advising a listed company in relation to a significant fraud involving approximately 30 jurisdictions; advising the liquidators of a group of companies in their claims against a former director and shareholder; acting in US$50 million asset tracing proceedings in which worldwide freezing orders, search orders, and asset disclosure orders were obtained; and acting in a multijurisdictional joint venture dispute. Annabel's recent energy and construction experience includes advising a global construction company in disputes arising out of the construction of an oil refinery in the Middle East and advising in a dispute arising out of the operation of floating offshore production facilities.

Prior to joining the Firm, Annabel primarily acted in disputes in the mining and energy industries, including construction arbitrations arising out of onshore and offshore oil and gas projects, and joint venture disputes arising out of mining operations.
