Commercial Litigation


Areas of Practice
:  general commercial litigation and dispute resolution, including fraud-related matters, professional negligence disputes and regulatory investigations/disputes


I advise companies and high net worth individuals on a broad range of commercial disputes and fraud-related matters, including complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes. I have particular experience of using the Court’s powers to obtain appropriate relief (including worldwide freezing orders, pre- and post-judgment receivership orders and search orders) to identify and preserve assets with a view to enforcement.

I act on professional negligence matters. I have represented both claimants and defendants in matters concerning solicitors and accountants.

I also advise on regulatory issues, investigations and disputes and I have particular experience advising FMCG companies on anti-illicit trade measures and supply chain controls.
