When I take your case, I’ll never give you less than my best. I passionately believe in fairness, and I realise that sometimes, it involves the need for confrontation in an appropriate form.
As part of the Dispute Resolution team, I use my vast experience from both my time as a City lawyer and working privately for civil engineering giant WS Atkins plc to act on matters including construction claims, breach of contract, misfeasance, fraud and negligence claims among others.
I believe that court is the last resort, and I specialise in a number of alternative dispute resolution methods, including mediation, arbitration and adjudication. I never stop thinking about my cases, as inspiration can strike at any moment.
Outside of work, I enjoy jazz and am a proud member of Ronnie Scott’s. I also like to cycle, and am a Queens Park Rangers supporter.
