3PB Direct

How much experience do you have in this area?

Prior to coming to the Bar, I qualified as a Chartered Accountant and then worked for 14 years in international investment banking in London and New York. My background in finance and accountancy enables me to deal with complex financial loss claims including loss of self-employment, loss of business and pension claims.

Legal Expertise

Prior to coming to the Bar, I qualified as an accountant and then worked in international investment banking for 15 years.

I’m consequently able to bring that experience and expertise to my practice in professional negligence matters, acting for both claimants and defendants, particularly in relation to actions involving accountants, tax advisers, financial advisers and solicitors.

Current and recent cases include:

  • Advising a Company in relation to allegedly negligent tax advice involving claims for Entrepreneurs’ Relief, Capital Allowances and Inter-Company property transfers.
  • Advising a Company in relation to alleged negligence on the part of its statutory auditor in failing to advise on financial mismanagement and impending financial difficulties.
  • Advising a small company in potential claim against payroll sub-contractor following discovery of overpayments to employees and failure to account for PAYE.
  • Advising an individual in relation to alleged negligence by solicitor representing him in criminal proceedings, including delay in instituting judicial review proceedings and unauthorised disclosure.

Connected to my professional negligence work, I also represent accountants and other financial professionals in disciplinary proceedings.

In terms of my licensing and regulatory experience I represent Commercial and Public Service Vehicle Operators in the criminal courts and appear frequently in Public Inquiries before the Traffic Commissioners. I also advise and represent individuals and firms before Admissions, Registration and Licensing Committees of various professional bodies and in the Tribunal System (Social Care and Social Entitlement Chambers).

I also have extensive experience of representing the deceased’s family, interested parties, employers and highway authorities at Inquests.
