I joined Child & Child in September 2023. I advise both companies and individuals and pride myself on my ability to provide advice that is focused on the client’s commercial needs.

I act for clients on a range of commercial litigation matters, including breach of contract claims, partnership and shareholder disputes, breach of warranty claims, property disputes and professional negligence matters.

I am also instructed to act on both contentious and non-contentious insolvency matters and have experience acting for and against office holders in bringing and defending claims under the Insolvency Act 1986.

Notable cases:

  • Acted for the Defendant, Gary Love, in successfully opposing a claim by Gordon Ramsay to free himself from the obligations under a personal guarantee worth £1.28m which, Mr Ramsay said, was signed on his behalf using a ‘ghost-writing machine’ without his knowledge and/or authority;
  • Instructed by the Claimant in an LCIA arbitration seeking damages for breaches by the Respondent of its obligations under a Hotel Management Agreement relating the operation of an exclusive hotel chain in Japan;
  • Acted for the Joint Liquidators of a company in successfully recovering payments made by the insolvent company in breach of section 217 of the Insolvency Act 1986 and making an application to successfully obtain documents from the insolvent company’s former solicitors pursuant to section 236 of the Insolvency Act 1986;
  • Acted for five Respondents to oppose an application by the Joint Trustees in Bankruptcy to set aside, under section 284 of the Insolvency Act 1986, dispositions totalling £2.5m made by the Bankrupt to the Respondents in the period between the presentation of the bankruptcy petition and the making of the bankruptcy order; and
  • Acted for the Claimants, two South African companies, in seeking to recover damages in excess of £5m relating to breaches by the Defendants of warranties under a share purchase agreement relating to the purchase by our clients of an English consulting business.
