I am a Solicitor in the Litigation Department based in our city centre office. I qualified as a Solicitor in 2016.
I specialise in Dispute Resolution and advise clients on a wide variety of issues including contractual disputes, professional negligence, landlord and tenant disputes and pursuing or disputing debts.
I also have experience in commercial law as I advise on and draft terms and conditions, shareholders agreements, non-disclosure agreements, settlement agreements and releases, commercial leases and website policies.
I find my workload to be very interesting given the diversity of work. No two matters are the same and I often advise on unique situations that vary in value and complexity. I work closely with my clients to find out exactly what their ideal outcome is and I do my utmost to obtain a desirable but cost effective outcome.
Outside of work I am an avid football fan and a keen runner.
