I am a dispute resolution lawyer, who primarily helps individuals involved in probate and trust disputes. I also have many years experience in dealing with claims made against professionals including legal, construction and financial professionals. I am well known for my firm but fair approach to the resolution of disputes. I am a fierce advocate of mediation, recognising that in family disputes particularly (where my aim is to maintain relationships wherever possible), it can be an extremely useful tool to bring about early closure of disputes and at less cost. Trials/contested hearings are very much the exception rather than the rule, but when they are the only option, I have been praised for my no nonsense, efficient and diligent approach.
I am ranked as an Eminent Practitioner in the Chambers & Partners, A Client’s Guide to the UK Legal Profession (2021 edition) and I am also listed as a Recommended lawyer in the Legal 500, The Clients’ Guide to the UK Legal Profession (2020 edition).
