Me in a minute

I love the challenge of my specialist area and the strategic planning that is required at the outset of an arbitration/litigation case.

I am fascinated by historical battles and wars of the past, and I really do enjoy going in to battle for my clients, not only in court, but negotiating hard for them to secure the best possible outcome.
