I act for banks and other financial services sector clients in relation to complex recoveries and possession actions, LPA Receivership, mortgage fraud, professional negligence, subrogation, Land Registry division of the Property Chamber, First-tier Tribunal (previously known as Adjudication) proceedings, invoice discounting and other asset based lending disputes, operational loss, claims against lenders including alleged product mis-selling, and real estate litigation.

I have a reputation for dealing effectively with complex disputes, for identifying and addressing the key issues and for concluding cases to clients' satisfaction.
