A bit about me

When clients come to me, they are commonly facing complex, high-stress and high-risk scenarios – I get to the heart of the issue and, as a committed problem-solver, work with them to manage their risks and find the best outcome for them.

The best decisions are made with the clearest understanding of the issues, and it is my job to make sure that I provide information, advice and answers so that every client, from a global plc to a charity or a farming firm, has the quality of support they need. My clients range from large companies and SMEs to educational institutions and high net worth individuals; each deserves the very best I can give them.

Outside work, music is very important in my life; my wife and I lead a worship group at church, and I play in another band. Sailing and Welsh rugby are on the list too!

I do have other roles beyond work – I’m an Ambassador for the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) and the Honorary Solicitor for The Northamptonshire Association of Youth Clubs, as well as the Under Sheriff of Northamptonshire and Deputy Lieutenant for Northamptonshire.

Want to know more?

Seek advice and assistance early; delay can be costly.

The best decisions are made on careful reflection and consideration, not on the spur of the moment.

If you are finding issues tricky, bear in mind that your opponent is probably finding them more so.

How much will the dispute cost me?

More than you probably think.

How long will the dispute take?

Longer than you probably expect.

Will I win?

Be clear about what you mean by a ‘win’ and set your expectations accordingly.
