A bit about me

Dispute resolution is all about getting to the heart of thorny legal issues. I need to be a problem solver for my clients, but also use reason and logic to help them win their battle. The range and variety of my work demands that I remain sharp and current on all areas of law.

I am a dedicated and thorough dispute resolution lawyer, exploring every avenue and leaving no stone unturned in the fight for my clients’ best outcomes. I offer tailored advice – there is no one-size-fits-all.

I support companies large and small, charities, and individuals in commercial disputes, professional negligence claims, and advice relating to domain name disputes.

Outside of work, I remain a problem solver as a passionate cryptic crossword and sudoku player. I also spend a lot of time in triathlon training and play clarinet in a wind band.

Want to know more?

It is worth taking the time to put proper legal agreements in place in the first place to avoid disputes later down the line.

Seek legal advice early on in a dispute.

Be prepared to compromise – sometimes a settlement can feel like a loss for both parties, but that’s not the case.

How strong is my legal case?

Often the answer is not simple and the client will need to decide how to proceed based on the advice as to the strengths and weaknesses of their case.

How long will it take to resolve the dispute?

Between several months and several years.

How much will it cost to resolve the dispute?

Costs can build up quickly in disputes, as the factual and legal assessment is time-consuming.
