I became a barrister in 1996 and have specialised in these areas ever since then. I have represented people and companies in many different courts.
My insolvency practice encompasses both personal and corporate insolvency and I welcome instructions in the following areas:
Recent cases include representing liquidators against directors in complex claims for misfeasance, transactions at an undervalue and preferences. I’ve also recently represented a bankrupt in claims against trustees in bankruptcy who are alleged to have acted against the interest of the bankrupt in the residue of the estate.
I have a real ability to think laterally, which gives me a real advantage when acting as a mediator. I understand the day to day concerns of the lay client and am willing to take as much time as is necessary to reach a resolution – at times taking the less travelled path and looking at creative solutions the apparently insoluble.I’m flexible in my approach and appreciate that even in apparently straightforward matters, there may be underlying emotional issues which have to be acknowledged and addressed in order to give the best chance of settling the actual legal issues. In those matters, I’ll address and value the emotional issues, without allowing them to get out of hand or to interfere with a sensible settlement.
Where the issues are practical or legal, I’ll seek to assist the parties to look at alternative solutions of ways of solving them. It is my experience that it is often the issues that appear to be trivial which are of greatest importance to one or more of the parties.
