I am a partner in the Dispute Resolution team and have over 35 years’ experience as a litigator advising on a broad range of contentious issues, both in formal dispute proceedings and outside of them. As a qualified mediator, I am able to assist in all aspects of the dispute resolution process. I am also a highly experienced Supervising Solicitor.
I advise a range of clients, including companies and their directors, individuals, charities and not-for profit-organisations, trusts and trustees, on a variety of contentious issues such as:
The case was one involving extortion/fraud. Instituting arbitration proceedings and dealing throughout to the obtaining of an award in the client’s favour. The award I secured entitled the client to repayment of approximately £8M and declared that he was under no obligation to pay a further approximately £7M otherwise payable under the terms of the relevant loan agreement entered into under duress.
The dispute was as to whether advances made were loans or for an interest in various developments. Securing settlement on terms involving the transfer of property interests and payment of a significant sum. The matter involved company and personal liability, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, property and insolvency issues.
