My focus is to assist clients with complex commercial disputes; particularly disputes referred to international arbitration or cross-border litigation.

While arbitration and litigation can sometimes be unavoidable, I prioritise helping clients achieve cost-effective and swift resolutions. I believe negotiated solutions should be sought whenever possible, and have experience in many forms of ADR including mediation, adjudication, and contractual settlement. I have also provided advice on injunctive, bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings as alternative means to obtaining clients' objectives.

I assist clients in the manufacturing, engineering, construction, IT, technology, retail, healthcare and professional services sectors.

The cases I work on include claims for breach of contract, professional negligence, product liability, fraud and investigations, breach of director's duties, and anti-competitive practice. This work often involves a significant international element. Many of the disputes I have been involved with span territories worldwide, with my recent experience involving cases with elements in the USA, Brazil, France, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China and India.

My approach to building successful relationships and results for clients is to prioritise an open and consistent dialogue. I proactively engage and communicate with, and, above all else, listen to clients to ensure that tailored, commercially practical advice is delivered.

Some of the highlights from my recent work include:
  • Successfully bringing a claim for rectification of an EPC contract for a specialist engineering company against a sub-contractor in international ICC arbitration proceedings.
  • Assisting a regeneration and development specialist bring about adjudication proceedings, and successfully negotiating a settlement for all monies due ahead of such proceedings.
  • Defending a global manufacturer in the healthcare technology sector against a product liability claim.
  • Advising an FTSE 100 company engaged in High Court litigation for breach of contract, negligence, and breach of director's duties in a global dispute.
In my spare time I am an avid traveler and I love to learn about other cultures. I am also fond of anything involving physical activity; including wild swimming, water polo, running, yoga, rugby and racket sports.
