I am an experienced dispute resolution lawyer, helping clients resolve problems across a wide range of corporate, commercial and private matters, as disputes often do not fall neatly into any single category.

I have been with Fladgate for over 30 years, for about half of which my main specialism was real estate disputes. Work for a corporate client led me to diversify into broader civil and commercial disputes, though often (but by no means always) with real estate at their heart in one way or another. As my clients’ businesses grew so has the breadth and depth of my practice.

Over the years I have acted in a wide range of challenging disputes, and have extensive experience of the full range of processes, whether court claims, arbitration, expert determination, mediation and always negotiation whenever possible.

Different cases and clients require different approaches, but the common objective is to resolve the problem in the best way for the client. A win is terrific. Still as the song goes, you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you find, you get what you need (with thanks to the Rolling Stones for that piece of wisdom).

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking and pretty much anything outdoors, visiting art galleries, museums and the theatre, watching the Arsenal (theatre of a different kind).
