I joined Gordon Dadds in 2013 from Harris Cartier Ltd. Prior to this I read law at Nottingham Law School. I deal with a broad range of civil litigation for commercial clients of all sizes. My experience includes contractual disputes, partnership disputes, professional negligence claims (including against solicitors and IFAs), arbitration and shareholder disputes. Recent work includes acting as part of the legal team for a defendant partner/shareholder in successfully establishing that a number of assets held in the UK and abroad worth substantially more than £10m were partnership assets and resisting a related unfair prejudice petition.

Outside of work, I am a keen Tottenham Hotspur supporter.

Qualifications:
LLB (Hons) Law (Nottingham Law School)
LPC, College of Law (London

What is your most interesting legal experience?

One of my most interesting legal experiences was when I was acting as a member of the defendant legal team concerning claims brought against our client relating to a commercial olive press. We were able to learn the intricacies of olive oil production from a master miller.

What is your best legal anecdote?

I learnt at an early stage that parties to litigation are not always alive to the importance of preserving key evidence. On one occasion, I was dealing with a claim concerning an allegedly damaged gearbox, so we requested inspection of the item. What was received was a cigarette packet containing metal shavings that appeared to have been swept up off a workshop floor.
