I am an experienced solicitor advocate and mediator. I have worked in the law since 2003 almost entirely within litigation.
Currently I work for BWL Consulting Ltd, in their London office where I head their dispute resolution practice.
In 2019 I passed the Higher Rights - Civil qualification, and qualified as a solicitor advocate. This allows me to appear on behalf of clients in the higher courts in England and Wales.
In addition to my work in litigation I am also an accredited mediator. I am a strong believer in the benefits of mediation as a method of resolving disputes. My Master’s dissertation was on the subject of compulsory mediation in civil litigation in England and Wales.
I practice mainly in the areas of general commercial and construction litigation, however I have had experience in a wide range of disputes including group litigation; company and partnership disputes; and banking and regulatory investigations. I have extensive experience litigating in the High and County Courts as well as pursing matters through arbitration; adjudication; and mediation.
I am experienced working as a lead solicitor or as part of a team. I have worked on site with many clients. I have experience of working in private practice, as a self employed consultant and as an in house solicitor and have worked on disputes in the England and Wales; the USA; Germany; Saudi Arabia and Australia.
I am experienced advocate in the County Court and have obtained Higher Rights of Audience, allowing me to appear in the higher courts. I am an accomplished mediation advocate and have also acted as an adjudicator on the CEDR Aviation Adjudication Scheme and the Code for Home Builders Independent Dispute Resolution Scheme.
In non contentious matters I am experienced in dealing with most standard form building contracts (including JCT, NEC and RIBA), and adept at drafting commercial agreements.
