Ian Austin, Managing Partner, Dispute Resolution

Ian Austin, Managing Partner, Dispute Resolution, Fieldfisher

I am responsible for the overall management and direction of the Manchester office and lead the Dispute Resolution department.

A leading expert in the resolution of disputes with over 22 years' experience spent advising large PLCs and FTSE 100 companies.

I have particular expertise in resolving contractual disputes, general commercial claims, shareholder disputes and property litigation.

I help clients to get results in commercial disputes, as a result I have been named as a legal expert in Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

In my spare time I have a keen interest in rugby and play tennis on a regular basis together with being an avid Manchester United supporter.
