About

I specialise in the resolution of commercial and personal disputes, particularly those involving allegations of fraud, misfeasance and breach of trust.

Since starting as a partner with Fladgate in 2012, I have represented a broad range of clients - individuals, companies and organisations – and have helped them to seek legal redress or to defend themselves against claims.

I consider myself lucky to be able to help people and organisations, often at the most stressful of times, to navigate themselves out of situations in which they find themselves.

Many of my clients live or have businesses abroad which can add unwanted complexity to their claims. I am used to working on multi-jurisdictional disputes and to making applications to the court in this country to assists disputes in other jurisdictions, for example with worldwide freezing orders.

I am the Vice Chairman (civil) of the Fraud Lawyers Association and also a committee member of the London Solicitors Litigation Association. I write regularly for the legal press on issues affecting litigators in England.
