My particular areas of specialism are banking and finance disputes. I am regularly instructed in relation to substantial shareholder and joint venture disputes, frequently involving allegations of fraud.

I am a consultant in the Dispute Resolution department at Fladgate.

My practice has traditionally been claimant focused, generally bringing claims against large institutions, although I am equally adept at defending clients, with notable success, particularly in the unfair prejudice arena.

I have expertise in the litigation funding arena. Through my connections, I am able to assist clients in securing funding solutions to enable them to bring their claims.
