A bit about me

Resolving disputes, whether in court or outside it, relies on real knowledge of a client’s business needs and objectives – I enjoy working closely with people towards solutions, so that I can find a way to help them beyond simply applying the relevant law.

I work with companies in a wide range of sectors, from construction, sports, media and telecoms to financial or advisory businesses and my advice is always clear and pragmatic; even if it is not the news my client wants to hear, I am straight about what their options are and clear with my recommendations. Litigation does not always mean going to court, but I am always willing to fight my client’s corner.

Outside work my focus is on my family, but I also spend time on restoring cars and Krav Maga.

Speak to a litigator before problems begin. I can help someone far more when looking into potential hypothetical problems or situations that look likely to be problems in the future. The later a litigator is brought in, the more difficult the task and the less options there are available.

Have a clear goal and definition of a ‘win’ in mind. Once this is established the strategy to achieve it can be designed

Be commercial and as unemotional about a dispute as you can bring yourself to be, pride and principle can be very expensive.

Why do solicitors cost so much?
Because you are not paying just for my time today, but the education and years of experience I have amassed in dealing with these types of problems, which helps resolve them more efficiently and successfully.

How do I resolve disputes?
The best way is to have good terms and conditions in place. Review them regularly and have your litigator talk to your commercial solicitors to ensure that, after each dispute, you add in any clauses that could have helped you.
