Described as having “extraordinary talent”, eloquency, and ability to explain complex issues to lay clients", she is a firm believer in seeking to bring added value to any case whatever her role.

In the last year alone, Anneliese has been involved in some of the largest and most high profile international commercial, construction and energy disputes in the world, including; the termination of a US$350 million contract in Trinidad (having also successfully called in the project security in the Court of Appeal in London); one of the largest arbitrations in the world in Singapore involving a mine in Australia; a dispute concerning decommissioning of a nuclear power plant in Lithuania; an arbitration in London concerning the Crescent Development Project in Azerbaijan. She is currently acting for Alhambra in their ongoing ICSID claim against the Republic of Kazakhstan (in a $500 million dispute) being heard in Washington DC.
