Read more about me

I handle a wide extent of injury related litigation and advise on cases ranging up to and including seven figure claims.

I regularly appear before a range of Courts and tribunals to represent litigants at hearings and interested parties at inquests. I am experienced at dealing with unopposed applications through to highly contested and sensitive cases with multiple issues and extensive documentary evidence.

I mostly represent defendants in respect of casualty claims and often provide advice on strategic matters before the case comes to litigation. I have an interest in procedural rules and have given training seminars on various procedural issues.

I also have experience in alternative dispute resolution including JSM’s and formal Mediations. I have extensive experience of trial work along with appellate proceedings and I routinely handle costs issues following the conclusion of a case and Costs Budgeting to provide clarity as to likely insurance outlay.
