How can I help you?

I am the firm’s most senior family lawyer with over 35 years dispute resolution experience across the range of matrimonial and civil litigation. I focus on the resolution of financial and property claims upon relationship breakdown particularly in farming, business and professional families where extensive business knowledge is aligned with forensic legal expertise. The same expertise is brought to Inheritance Act and Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act claims. 

I am also experienced in providing advice and guidance on professional matters. Having been the firm’s Managing Partner for many years prior to becoming Senior Partner and Group Chairman, I am able to bring together business and dispute resolution expertise. 

As Chair of the Risk Committee of the group I am experienced in the management of business risk and in guiding others on professional risk and indemnity issues. 

I take great pride in helping lead the firm’s progressive growth and development as a forward thinking professional services provider. For other professionals and business organisations I can provide independent chairmanship or consultancy. 

Delivering what you really need

Clear judgement, sound thinking and practical implementation will help you focus on the outcome from the first meeting. I will ensure you set the correct strategic approach from the outset. You will begin to know your goals and how to achieve them. You will hear me straight talking if I am fearful you may be taking the wrong route. 

You will have my unswerving commitment, support and understanding in helping you achieve a fair outcome and in advocating and negotiating your fairest position.

What else should you know? 

I am a member of Resolution and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators authorised to arbitrate financially related matters under the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators scheme.

Testimonials

Mr G

Bishop's Stortford

You did a great job countering barristers engaged by my then wife, to conclude a reasonable settlement for me at the Court. Thanks very much for your help and advice all those years ago - it has proven to be excellent!

Mr B

Cheshire

I have often thought back to some of our conversations in 2007 and your wise words on future possibilities. As I approach retirement, I will be left with some choices to make, but am in the fortunate position of being able to make those choices without financial pressure. Thank you.

Ms D

Bedfordshire

All in all, I still can’t thank you enough for all the help, advice and encouragement you gave me at the time of the divorce.  I always felt really safe that you would get the best settlement in the nicest possible way.
