Specialist areas:

  • Business related disputes
  • Property disputes

About me:

I have been a specialist dispute resolution lawyer since 1997 and have substantial experience of a wide range of business and personal disputes. I deal predominantly with business related cases such as claims for breach of contract and shareholders/partnership disputes.

I believe that the key to winning disputes is to pay attention to even the smallest of details and to fight each dispute as if it is your own. I apply these principles to every case I deal with.

Key cases:

  • A £4.5m claim against directors for breach of guarantees and indemnities
  • A £5m claim against a company and its directors for breach of contract
  • A defamation claim by a national trade federation.

Professional memberships:

  • Professional Negligence Lawyers Association
  • Law Society’s Civil Justice Section

My top tip: Locate and secure all relevant documents and take draft statements from key witnesses as soon as it becomes clear that there will be a dispute.
