“Over three decades of work in dispute resolution has given me a keen eye for both the strategic and tactical aspects of my practice. My invariable aim is to get the best commercial deal for the client, as quickly as possible. I have worked with clients from across the world and take pride in fully explaining the reason for any advice given, whether this regards the substantive aspects of the law or any moves to be taken in the course of litigation or arbitration. I strive for flexibility in my approach, taking into account the latest developments in litigation, from funding strategies to technological advances.”
