About me:

I am a Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Department.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2002 and have specialised in dispute resolution since 2010. Since that time I have acted on behalf of both business owners and individuals dealing with a wide range of commercial and personal disputes. These include debt recovery, including enforcement, contract disputes, property disputes and Landlord and tenant issues.

During my career, I have developed a particular specialism in dealing with residential Landlord possession claims and have successfully regained possession of properties on behalf of Landlords dealing with particularly problematic tenants.

Outstanding debts are no good for business so my advice is to deal with them sooner rather than later so they have minimal effect on cash flow and chances of recovery are higher.

When it comes to Landlord and tenant disputes, it’s essential that landlords are aware that strict procedures that need to be followed to successfully re-gain possession of a property.
I regularly give talks to landlords associations and other forums to help educate landlords on ways they can protect themselves and their properties.

I focus on ensuring clients are aware of all the options available to them to achieve their main objective in the most cost effective and quickest way. This also includes exploring alternative resolution methods such as mediation.

Key cases:

  • Contentious probate – I successfully obtained a favourable settlement for my client who had been fighting a contentious probate claim against family members which resulted in all parties cooperating.
  • Property possession – Gained possession of a property where the tenants were attempting to use numerous defences to remain in the property and failing to pay rent.
  • Successfully obtained a substantial judgment for a client on the basis of a poorly drafted loan agreement.

My top tip: Provide your solicitor with all necessary information and documentation at the outset to enable them to fully understand your situation.
