I joined Porter Dodson in 1999 and have been a Partner since 2006. I am Head of the Dispute Resolution Team.
I advise on a wide range of disputes in addition to supervising the team. My client base is varied, ranging from individuals (both in their personal capacity and as fiduciaries) to corporate entities.
I listen to clients and provide proportionate, commercial, proactive advice focussing on resolution.
I am a keen runner and cyclist and a golfer of very limited ability.
