A practising Barrister at the London Bar. Commercial, Regulatory and Criminal background. The Legal 500 2017 feedback “he can cut through the uncertainty to get to the heart of the issue”.
I am a trained commercial mediator and an experienced commercial negotiator. Throughout my career I have been a strong supporter of ADR as an alternative to litigation.
I have been at the English Bar for 17 years practising from Charter Chambers in London and working in the City. During that time, I have gained wide experience as an advocate and negotiator in litigation, arbitration and mediation. Additionally, I am also a highly experienced criminal law practitioner acknowledged in the Legal 500 2017 as a leading criminal junior at the London Bar. Prior to the Bar I spent 10 years as a claims specialist within the London Insurance Market working within claims departments and with international loss adjusters – investigating and negotiating complex casualty, professional indemnity and property claims on a daily basis.
My approach is open and impartial, empowering the parties and encouraging them to engage with the process.
In business as in life things go wrong. How you deal with those problems is a matter of good judgment, experience and understanding. Whether acting as mediator, negotiator or advocate, my view is that many disputes can be solved by discussion and negotiation. Litigation is expensive and always carries risk. In mediation the parties in dispute own the process, blame and fault can be examined but equal focus can be spent on mutually finding solutions & managing the future. My role as mediator is to make parties aware of that and guide them on the right path, with less focus upon winning and losing and more focus upon reaching a resolution that they have achieved themselves through discussion, negotiation and compromise – commercial disputes are almost always capable of commercial solutions.
“Easy going approach, encourages the parties to invest in the process but not afraid to knock heads together when necessary”
“Business minded, understands the commercial realities and pressure on his clients”
