I graduated from the University of Exeter with an LLB (European) and my third year was spent at the Université of Aix-Marseille where I was a awarded a diploma in French private law.   I then stayed on at Exeter to complete the Legal Practice Course.  

I trained in Kent and then spent many years working in the City before joining Whitehead Monckton in 2004.  I became a Director when the firm incorporated to a Limited Company in April 2014 and now head up the Dispute Resolution team.

I am delighted to offer my expertise and advice to Docklands Solicitors’ clients following our merger with them in October 2016.

I have expertise in: resolving disputes between businesses and individuals and in particular in:

  • Contractual disputes
  • Property and landlord & tenant matters
  • Construction disputes
  • Insolvency law
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Resolving disputes through the process of mediation

I am also accredited by the London School of Mediation to act as a civil and commercial mediator and welcome appointments to act as a mediator.

Listed as a leading individual for Litigation in Chambers for 2016 (receives instructions in commercial property, sale of goods and professional negligence claims. He is praised for his "meticulous preparation" of cases.)

What my clients say:

“I am enormously grateful for the amount of time and energy you have given and we remain hugely in your debt”.

"The result remains a very positive one.  Thanks again for your contribution”

“Really appreciated you agreeing to help us as there is no doubt your presence and input at the mediation helped enormously with being able to sort everything out and get an agreement signed on the day”.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your invaluable advice and help during this stressful time.”

When out of the office:

I have lived in Kent since 1995 and am married with two young children who keep me very busy in my spare time.  However, I do venture on to the golf course when time permits!
