Are you a client let down by the service you have received from an adviser such as a solicitor, barrister, surveyor, financial adviser or accountant? Do you wish to bring a negligence claim? Do you want to know if you can challenge your lawyer’s fees? Are you a professional facing a complaint or claim, or in a dispute with insurers? I offer a free 30 minute meeting or telephone discussion to explore how I can help you.

I can advise you on the merits of your case or guide you through the relevant procedures; I draft or respond to court or other documents such as statements of case, witness statements, costs points of dispute, letters of claim or complaint; I can represent you in court hearings, mediations or other meetings. My work is divided equally between acting for clients and acting for professionals and their insurers, so I am very familiar with the pressures and tactics on both sides.

My specialist areas of practice are professional negligence and costs. I am also a qualified mediator. I have 17 years’ experience as a barrister in a well-regarded commercial set of chambers, 4 New Square. I am ranked as a leading junior in both of my practice areas by the Legal 500.

I always try to give advice which is comprehensive, realistic and easy to understand: ‘approachable and a pleasure to work with; he provides clear, thorough advice and is great in conference with clients’ (Legal 500, 2016 – Professional liability).

I am approachable and unstuffy: ‘a very valuable team member, who inspires real confidence’ (2016 – Costs); ‘extremely good on paper and very user friendly’ (2015 – Professional Liability).

I am hardworking and go the extra mile for my clients to guide them through what can be very stressful situations for them: “I cannot thank you enough for your brilliant advocacy, kindness and support at court this week” (a recent client in costs proceedings).
