I lead the firm’s dispute resolution (business & personal), civil litigation and commercial mediation practice. I am well known for handling judicial review cases and challenging the decisions of public bodies.
The litigation I handle is complex in nature and is undertaken for companies of all sizes, owner managed businesses, educational institutions and private individuals. Many of my cases involve international issues.
I am a mediator with a success rate of over 90% in settling disputes. I am a trustee of a number of charities.
I enjoy sport, especially tennis and football, and history.
