About me

At the age of 10, I was absolutely enthralled by the film ʼTwelve Angry Men’. Watching that, I knew that litigation was my calling, and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do since. I find solutions to disputes in a quick and effective way, avoiding unnecessary expense and ensuring businesses can keep moving forward.

Typically, I handle cases involving shareholder disputes, warranty and contract claims, springboard relief and enforcement of restrictive covenants. I have particular expertise in the defence and security sector, working with both multinational corporations and start-ups, and lead the Defence, Security and Forces team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys.

I was part of the team that founded the Herefordshire Security and Defence Group, of which I’m a board member, and I have run a resettlement programme for service leavers from the SAS, RAF and via webinars for the entirety of UK armed forces.

I also present at events in both the UK and abroad, covering the latest legal advances in the defence and security sector, and provide mentoring to numerous military leavers who want to start new businesses in the sector.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

Why should I compromise if I am in the right? 

Litigation always involves dead money – a successful claim will only recover around 70% of your actual costs. You should also consider the “hidden” costs when it comes to your time, as you’ll need to focus your attention on the case, rather than on profitable activities. You also run the risk of damaging commercial relationships, but I will always outline the pros and cons of any case from the beginning.
