I am a solicitor in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution department and joined Gordon Dadds as a trainee in 2008. I have broad experience in a diverse range of civil litigation matters acting for both individuals and companies. I have a particular interest in all aspects of commercial litigation, debt collection, insolvency as well as contested trust and probate, with particular expertise in claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing squash, tennis and cricket, as well as travelling and going to the theatre.
What is your most interesting legal experience?
My most interesting legal experience was assisting Peter Atkinson in the case of Parabola Investments Ltd v Browallia CAL Ltd and ors against MF Global which had a significant impact on the law on damages and saw the first claim of its kind in which damages for lost profits were awarded to a trader.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
I really enjoy assisting and advising a diverse range of clients, sometimes in very challenging circumstances, in order that they achieve the best possible outcome in relation to their legal dispute.
