About me:

I am a Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution

I have specialised in commercial and civil litigation since 1997 and qualified as a solicitor in 2000. With substantial experience of dealing with a wide range of both business and personal disputes. I have a particular expertise in partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, contract disputes and disputes about wills and estates.

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 Court of Appeal case relating to commercial property rights

Professional memberships:

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

My top tip: Most cases turn on the facts. As soon as it becomes clear there will be a dispute locate and secure all relevant documents and take draft statements from key witnesses.
