Position

Edward has practised since 1973 in the field of general commercial and chancery dispute resolution and advice. He specialises in commercial contracts of all kinds, partnerships and LLPs, company and insolvency, professional negligence and civil fraud. Within those areas his practice is wide-ranging, which enables him to advise and act with confidence in multidisciplinary cases. He is regularly instructed in cases which would otherwise require the services of a QC. He is noted for combining an excellent legal brain, good judgment, commerciality and a very approachable manner with an extremely conscientious approach towards research and preparation, persuasively presented paperwork and forceful and astute advocacy. He co-founded Chambers in 1975 and was head of 11 Stone Buildings from October 2004 till January 2015. He has sat as a Recorder since 2000. Although the vast majority of his work comes from solicitors or foreign lawyers, he does also undertake licensed and public access work. Over the years he has established a formidable reputation and has appeared in many reported decisions ranging from the House of Lords and Privy Council to the Court of Appeal and courts of first instance.
