I am an ambitious civil litigator with a strong case success record to date. I provide commercial and practical advice to SMEs and private individuals on the best way to resolve disputes. I always ensure that my service is tailored to the particular needs of each client. I am based in our Chelmsford office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01245 453804.
I love the critical challenge of the job as no two days are ever the same. I regularly advise clients upon shareholder disputes, debt recovery matters, professional negligence claims and commercial contract disputes. I am also part of the multidisciplinary construction team and advise developers, contractors and subcontractors on all types of construction disputes including payment issues, defects and professional negligence claims.
I enjoy winning and obtaining the best possible results. I find the most satisfying aspect of my role is being able to assist and guide my clients to resolve disputes in the most cost effective manner. It is certainly very rewarding when I have achieved the most favourable outcome for my clients.
I tackle cases with diligence and employ a strategic approach in litigation and settlement discussions. I am also competent in drafting pleadings for my clients and such efforts have been commended by Deputy District Judge Oldham sitting in Romford County Court.
In my free time, I am usually at the Emirates Stadium supporting Arsenal FC, and I enjoy watching international cricket at Lord’s and the Oval. I also enjoy reading, with a particular focus on 19th century British history.
