I am a Senior Associate in the Dispute Resolution Team at Child & Child.

I am a commercial litigation solicitor with wide-ranging cross-border litigation, dispute resolution and advocacy experience gained at a number of leading law firms in Birmingham, Channel Islands and London. Areas of expertise include shareholder / director disputes, contractual disputes, professional negligence, tax / trust / financial litigation, fraud, worldwide freezing orders and insolvency.

My career highlights include rapid early progression and a 100% success rate in winning cases at Anthony Collins, before joining the ‘offshore magic circle’ firm Mourant Ozannes in 2018, where I dealt with a number of high-value, complex cases, including a major fraud / share ownership dispute. I worked for City of London law firm Rosling King, contributing to a number of multi-million-pound disputes involving fraud, worldwide freezing orders and asset-tracing for multinational commercial clients before joining Child & Child in 2021.

I have a varied commercial litigation practice, dealing with both high-net-worth individuals and companies from family run businesses to publicly listed entities.  Areas of specialism include:

  1. Commercial Litigation
  2. Shareholder / Director / Partnership / Company disputes
  3. Contractual disputes
  4. Professional negligence
  5. Tax / Trust litigation
  6. Financial litigation
  7. Employment litigation
  8. Fraud / World wide freezing orders
  9. Insolvency
