Position

Shaman's practice at the Bar covers several fields of commercial and common law. He is ranked in Legal 500 as a leading Junior and is noted for being 'A pragmatic and forceful advocate' (2014) and for his 'ability to manage clients' expectations from the very earliest stage, and for his confidence in court' (2013). He qualified as a Mediator in April 2015. His commercial law experience includes international arbitration and domestic commercial disputes including contractual arrangements associated with construction projects, high-net-worth individuals, software developers and global corporations. He has experience of contractual interpretation, promissory note disputes and shareholder disputes. He is motivated to continue to develop his international practice and has sought opportunities in recent years in Dubai, Dublin and Singapore. He has experience of work in the DIFC Court, Dubai. His common law experience is broad and has developed through the fields of serious personal injury, coroner's inquests, credit hire, insurance fraud and employment law. His costs practice has grown with vigour and he is well-known and highly respected amongst practitioners and the judiciary. He enjoys the technical points and the diversity of practice areas to which costs work applies and is regularly involved in costs budgeting, enforceability arguments, assessments and advisory and drafting work on retainers. He is a contributing editor to Greenslade on Costs (looseleaf practitioner text from Sweet & Maxwell). He regularly speaks at seminars and his past experience in tax consultancy (London) and litigation (Toronto, Canada) keeps him broad minded, commercially astute and well-grounded with exceptional inter-personal skills.
