Specialist areas:

  • Bulk business-to-business debt recovery
  • School fees recovery
  • Landlord and tenant issues
  • Commercial and personal litigation

About me:

I focus on resolving disputes quickly whether it’s personal or commercial. Through an honest approach, my advice to clients is clear and I will always look at alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation to avoid going to court where possible.

When it comes to debt recovery, I take a commercial view, balancing costs against recovery at every stage while for bulk collection services a more bespoke approach is taken.

As well as helping landlords obtain possession of their properties, I am experienced in defending counterclaims including dilapidations and offset claims for rent arrears. Working closely with many local letting agents, I assist their clients with contentious matters and regularly speak at events aimed at landlords, advising them on effective recovery of property and rent arrears.

Key cases:

  • Representing a large commercial courier company in bulk debt recovery of unpaid invoices and loss claims.
  • Successfully recovered over £250,000 of unpaid school fees.
  • Advising and acting for commercial and private landlords in the recovery of their properties.

My top tip: Take advice as soon as possible after a dispute arises so you are aware of your legal position as this will help save time and costs in the long term.
