3PB Direct

I typically advise individuals and SMEs on claims against professional advisers, disputes about property, wills and probate and many areas of contract law, including sale of goods, insurance and partnership disputes. I am also an accredited mediation advocate.

I am an experienced adviser as well as trial advocate, helping clients with drafting legal letters and assisting on strategy in their commercial disputes.

How much experience do you have in this area?

40 years’ experience as a barrister in independent practice.

How would you describe your approach to working with clients?

I always tries to see the client’s perspective on their particular problem, to explain legal issues clearly and in simple language and to give realistic advice as to how best to resolve matters. I aim to provide a really efficient and responsive service and to turn around work speedily, where circumstances require it.

Legal Expertise

A large part of my experience lies in professional liability claims involving solicitors, but I also regularly deal with claims involving accountants, barristers, insurance brokers, financial services advisers, surveyors, valuers, architects and engineers.
