Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team.

I trained and qualified in 1994 as a Solicitor at a West End London firm where I remained until I moved to a well-established provincial firm of solicitors in Chelmsford where I continued to deal with various areas of civil and commercial litigation and dispute resolution. After setting up and running a Litigation Department for another firm I opened and ran my own practice until I joined Capstick-Dale & Partners in 2011. I continue to act for individuals, partners, companies, directors, shareholders and clients from all walks of life. I’ve built a reputation for having detailed technical knowledge of the law and its procedures coupled with an intuitive commercial approach to resolving many different types of legal disputes. My work invariably comes from recommendations including from long-standing clients. I “say it as it is” by giving clear, sensible and commercial advice to clients whilst remaining empathic and understanding of clients’ needs and objectives.

As a commercial and civil litigator I help to resolve disputes involving companies, directors, shareholders, partners, LLP’s and individuals regarding matters including debts, consumer issues, contracts, negligence, professional negligence, misrepresentation and breach of trust. I also deal with employment Settlement Agreements. I act for letting agents, private or commercial landlords and private or commercial tenants regarding repossession, disrepair, tenancy renewals, enfranchisement and property-related claims for damages. I also deal with injunctions, land ownership/boundary and rights of way disputes. My work includes insolvency-related litigation acting for Trustees in Bankruptcy, Liquidators and Administrators which enables me to also act for and strategically advise individuals or businesses with debt issues whether clients are creditors or debtors. I also deal with the buying and selling of businesses for clients. I also provide good, sound advice on the drafting of documents for commercial as well as private clients.

Outside interests: I still enjoy playing competitive football in a veterans’ league, and enjoy golf and other sports.
