Location / Dorchester

I have substantial experience of handling and resolving disputes. I have represented private individuals and commercial clients in a wide range of cases where disagreements have arisen.  

I recognise the practical and commercial merits of settlement without litigation wherever possible. However, I believe in establishing early the prospects which would exist at trial and in presenting the strongest possible case, so that any settlement is on the best terms achievable. Many of my cases have concluded at mediation and I am experience in representing clients at mediation. If settlement cannot be achieved, I have the ability and experience to pursue cases through the courts, in order to obtain the best outcome.  

I am a solicitor-advocate (higher rights civil), which enables me to appear as an advocate in all civil courts. I am a member of the Solicitors’ Association of Higher Court Advocates and of the Law Society Advocacy Section.  

I handle cases involving alleged breaches of contract, including both commercial contract and consumer contracts for the supply of goods and services.  I also regularly deal with cases concerning disputed wills, estates and trusts, in company and partnership disputes and in agricultural cases.  

I have particular experience of professional negligence cases against other lawyers, accountants, surveyors and a range of other professionals and have acted in seven-figure claims.

I am a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association. I recognise that where clients have been let down by other professionals, it is extremely important to have specialist advice and representation where a claim has to be pursued.  

I also have extensive experience of representing clients in land and property disputes and hold membership of the Property Litigation Association. I have successfully acted for many clients in accident and injury claims in the past and dealt with an extensive range of different disputes. I have been appointed as a member of the Valuation Tribunal.
