How much experience do you have in this area?

I have over 35 years’ experience as a commercial barrister.

Legal Expertise

My wide ranging experience covers a wide range of civil litigation, specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration, including company and partnership disputes; intellectual property and franchise agreements; professional negligence claims; insolvency [personal and corporate] and white collar crime with an emphasis on complex corporate issues.

My commercial law practice specifically focuses on insolvency law and company law and I enjoy a formidable reputation for my civil and commercial expertise. I have particular experience advising and representing clients in a wide range of high value commercial disputes, breach of contract, trademark disputes and franchise agreements. My experience also extends to advising and representing legal and financial professionals in claims for liability.

I regularly advise on regulatory aspects of sports law, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and The GMC. I’ve handled disputes with HMRC offences (VAT, Company Act and Tax issues), insider share dealings, as well as fraud, bribery and corruption allegations. In addition I’m a highly experienced yachtsman with experience in marine law issues.

Most recently, I acted for the defendants for in a £15M claim brought before the Queens Bench Division by the HMRC in a claim for under-declared profits and siphoning off cash into property purchases. The matter was successfully resolved before commencement of a 15 day trial by negotiating a satisfactory compromise and settlement. Latterly, a £15M claim and worldwide freezing order claim in the Commercial Court [Fraud and Conspiracy to deceive claim].

In addition, I’ve had experience of leading legal teams in lengthy and complex trials, acting at every tribunal level and I also have experience in mediation and arbitration.
