"focused and likeable" "a formidable advocate"
Ellodie was called in 1999 and started life at the Bar as a commercial chancery pupil. Having moved to Tanfield to undertake a commercial second-six pupillage, Ellodie began taking on residential landlord and tenant work, principally for large social landlords and local authorities.
Ellodie has since developed a specialist property practice, for which she is recommended in both Chambers UK and the Legal 500. Her principal areas of practice are all aspects of commercial and residential leases (both short and long) with a particular emphasis on service and administration charge disputes, leasehold enfranchisement, right to manage and rights of first refusal. However, Ellodie also undertakes a certain amount of real property work.
Ellodie is a contributor to the first, second and third editions of ‘Service Charges and Management' (Sweet & Maxwell) and co-author of ‘Leasehold Enfranchisement Explained’ (RICS Publishing). In 2011 Ellodie was named Barrister of the Year, at the Enfranchisement & Right to Manage Awards and was Highly Commended in the same category in 2014. Ellodie is currently assisting the Law Commission with its review of enfranchisement law.
Ellodie retains an interest in commercial matters and her enthusiasm and aptitude for contract disputes means that Ellodie not only deals with contracts between landlords and tenants, but also general commercial contracts.
