Beyond just being a commercial lawyer and company lawyer, I have extensive experience of coal face commercial experience after setting up, growing and successfully selling three of my own businesses and from being involved in my third generation family business when entered administration in 2009.

I have been Chair of a Board or non-executive director of a wide range of businesses for over 15 years in the tech start up and education industries as well as for the largest NHS Clinical Commissioning Group in London serving over 369,000 people, commissioning over £400m in services.

This experience has meant I have accrued extensive contentious and non-contentious commercial experience including resolution and negotiation of shareholder, board, contract and commercial disputes and balancing competing interests. I can mediate or advise in the following areas:

  • Commercial and economic torts
  • Contract claims
  • Debt and disputed debt claims
  • Directors’ duties
  • Family business
  • Injunctions and other interim relief
  • General business regulatory
  • Sale and supply of goods and services
  • Shareholder and company disputes
  • Small, Fast Track and Multi Track claims

I can be instructed by businesses, shareholders and individuals direct under the public access scheme, or via a solicitor.

I am able to advise and act in a similar way to any other commercial lawyer, commercial solicitor, company solicitor or company lawyer could.
