How do you help clients?

I help clients manage a range of issues impacting on their business or institution. 

I most enjoy providing early strategic advice to clients that either avoids or helps resolve a dispute and allows the client to maintain a business relationship.


  1. Advising an operator in the energy sector on a multi-million pound defective equipment dispute.
  2. Advising on a number of disputes in relation to contracts for the sale of land.
  3. Representing a number of clients in procurement disputes and successfully having the award of contracts suspended followed by either having the procurement re-run or otherwise settling the claims.
