ProfileAlmost all my work concerns disputes relating to a contract, whether that be a contract between private individuals, companies or states. The amounts in dispute can range from the tens of thousands up to billions of dollars for large international companies. Spanning cases across this spectrum has helped me develop a forensic attention to detail and hone the more tactical aspects of litigation (and alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration). If you are looking for a heavyweight commercial barrister that you can instruct directly, then I am a good option.
In terms of the areas of law/industry I cover, my practice is broadly "commercial". This includes general contractual disputes, insurance disputes, and professional negligence. I also do a lot of work in some more esoteric areas of law including shipping, which has its own complicated rules for resolving disputes. In addition to 'pure' commercial work, much of my work also involves an interaction with trusts disputes, either pure trust work (wills and probate), or where there is a commercial dispute with a trust element, for instance, a commercial dispute involving a BVI trust.
I have experience in high court and county court litigation, and also in resolving disputes via alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as arbitration, mediation and conciliation. These ADR methods can be useful alternatives to litigation and can keep costs down. If you would like to enquire about whether you think we could work together effectively on your case, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I will happily take the time to talk to you and, if I can't help, I will point you in the direction of someone who can.
