• I am a litigation partner with over 15 years’ experience in commercial litigation and contentious construction, including having worked on a number of reported cases. 

    My clients come from a variety of sectors and services, and include local authorities, central government bodies, healthcare bodies, financial institutions, private companies and shareholders. 

    I advise on a wide range of litigation matters, including PFI/ projects disputes, professional negligence claims, commercial and contractual disputes, sale of goods and product liability issues, corporate and breach of warranty claims, shareholder disputes, and breach of confidentiality claims.

    I deliver straightforward and cost-effective legal advice and regularly deal with all forms of dispute resolution, including Court proceedings, adjudication, expert determination, negotiation and mediation.  My aim is to get to know my client’s business and strategic aims and to implement that in the most effective and practical way.
