I am Manchester born and bred and have lived in the city all my life. I am married to Caroline and we live in North Manchester with our two daughters.
In whatever spare time I have I enjoy running and cycling and I am an avid follower of both Manchester City and the Boston Red Sox. In a previous life I was a cricket scorer and statistician for BBC radio.
I specialise in all aspects of commercial litigation, with particular emphasis on contractual disputes, company and shareholders disputes, intellectual property issues and property matters, particularly contentious landlord and tenant disputes.
I also advise on insolvency matters, acting for companies and directors, as well as for insolvency practitioners.
Across the department we represent our clients at all levels of courts and tribunals, ranging from County Court to the Court of Appeal. I also have significant experience of pursuing alternative despite resolution and have been involved in numerous successful mediations.
