I am a highly experienced dispute resolution lawyer advising the UK and international businesses on complex, high-stakes disputes.  My practice spans High Court litigation and international arbitration, while my clients are often drawn from the financial services, energy or natural resources sectors.  I have particular expertise in cross-border disputes, advising on matters where complex jurisdiction scenarios and conflicts of law are of critical importance. 
I am an expert in competition damages litigation, regularly acting for either claimants or defendants in claims for losses caused by abuses of competition law, including cartel activity.  My experience in this arena includes a multi-million-pound claim in the Competition Appeal Tribunal on behalf of a listed German technology company; the defense of a major Swedish metals and mining company in a cartel claim in the High Court and Competition Appeal Tribunal; and advising a global OEM on claims relating to the automotive sector.
Working as a financial journalist before I embarked on a career in the law, I enjoy employing my investigatory and communication experience, as well as my business knowledge to my clients' problems.  I also greatly enjoy the legal and strategic analysis involved in devising solutions for clients who find themselves drawn into disputes, but I am commercially-minded and always aim to deliver pragmatic results that meet clients' specific needs.
In my spare time, I like gardening, cooking, art, film, concerts, and opera.  Having just about shaken off the kids, I am enjoying the freedom to resume travelling to interesting and out of the way destinations.
