I am skilled in dealing with all types of commercial contract disputes, breach of duty claims, financial services mis-selling claims, insolvency related litigation and professional negligence claims (accountants, solicitors and surveyors).

I also have considerable experience and expertise in all forms of commercial dispute management including High Court and County Court litigation, international and domestic arbitration, expert determination, mediation and settlement negotiations.  I am also experienced in dealing with injunctions (freezing orders, search and seize orders and springboard relief).
