My Expertise

My principal area of expertise is Health and Safety and I have amassed significant expertise in defending companies, directors and senior managers facing investigation for breaching health and safety duties. My experience covers prosecutions brought by the Police, HSE, local authorities and environmental agencies.

Read more about me

My aim is to always be on call for clients and operate in a transparent manner which allows me to work alongside clients investigating an "incident" to gain a valuable insight into how their organisation works. I then operate as an interface between the client and the Police, or other regulatory agency, protecting my client every step of the way. I offer immediate legal defence particularly when requested to defend motor prosecutions.

I am regularly instructed by both private clients and insurers and as a result I have worked across many business sectors. I have dealt principally with fatal accidents and those involving serious personal injury. More recently I have been instructed to represent a Company which has been charged with two counts of Corporate Manslaughter.

I pride myself in engendering confidence with clients and insurers alike which is achieved through the application of my expert technical knowledge and the understanding of commercial needs.
In addition to the defence of health and safety matters, I have handled a plethora of motor offences and established an enviable reputation for handling the most serious cases in which drivers, if found guilty face incarceration for a number of years.

I regularly appear personally on behalf of my clients in the lower Courts, dealing with all preliminary hearings, mitigations and trials. Similarly I have been retained by my clients to provide representation at inquests including those convened before a jury.
