Experience

I am a solicitor in the Real Estate Disputes department acting for commercial, charity and private clients advising on a wide range of both commercial and residential property related disputes.

I have extensive experience in dispute resolution advising on general commercial disputes as well as property disputes.

I like to work with clients to deliver cost effective solutions to problems and achieve early resolution of disputes where possible. I like to think of creative solutions to clients problems and have experience in advising on settlement strategy and tactics.

I also have experience in third party funding and after the event insurance having worked a litigation funder. This means that I am able to look at the bigger picture and consider and discuss with clients the commercial and financial aspects of bringing any claim.
