I provide expert legal representation in all areas of Employment Law, Family Law, Personal Injury Claims, Business and Commercial Law, Land and Property Law, Cost Issues, Clinical Negligence and Professional Negligence. In what can be highly emotional situations, I deliver calm, effective, focussed support with a practical approach and ability to think laterally to resolve disputes.

REPRESENTATION IN COURT AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

As a general law Barrister, I am instructed by:
- Insurance companies
- Members of the public
- Commercial landlords
- Private landlords
- Social landlords
- Mortgage companies
- Solicitors
- Businesses

I regularly appear at hearings in the County, Business and Property Courts in Leeds and Manchester and the High Court, as well as attending settlement meetings, negotiations and mediations. I accept instructions to advise in conference, to draft pleadings and to undertake court appearances at all levels. My detail-orientated yet straightforward style ensures I enjoy good relationships with clients, tribunals and courts alike and achieve excellent case outcomes.

I combine my busy legal practice with an academic interest in the Law. I am a lecturer in Tort and Contract Law, Civil and Commercial Litigation and Advocacy at BPP University. I am also working towards a PhD in Law at Lancaster University, having secured the Access to Justice scholarship. I am an external examiner for the Bar Standards Board and a member of the Law Society Access to Justice Committee.
