Daniel is a senior associate in the litigation and arbitration team.
Daniel is an experienced dispute resolution solicitor specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration. Daniel handles complex and multi-faceted legal issues across a range of sectors and provides tailored and practical advice to clients depending on their specific requirements. Daniel's cases regularly require him to combine his experience across different legal specialisms and often include an international element.
Daniel has a busy civil fraud practice dealing with high value and time sensitive cross border claims, which often involve multiple parties and various international jurisdictions, with particular experience dealing with financial and digital fraud claims. These regularly involve urgent Court Orders and asset tracing tasks. Daniel also handles a range of corporate shareholder and director disputes as well as insolvency and restructuring matters for individuals and different types of businesses, within the UK and internationally.
Daniel's practice also includes commercial and contractual disputes for both individuals and companies. He has a particular focus on protecting intellectual property and propriety technology rights as well as dealing with legal issues arising in the sports sector, for governing authorities, sports clubs and athletes.
Daniel’s clients are most often high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals who are involved on both the Claimant or Defendant side of disputes. Daniel also has a lot of experience advising closely held owner managed businesses and larger corporate organisations.
Daniel’s experience extends to all of the senior courts in England & Wales as well as arbitration panels and specialist tribunals. Daniel also liaises with international experts around the world for court and arbitration matters in those jurisdictions and he works with a range of third party technology providers and litigation funders and insurers to help facilitate a comprehensive strategy and approach for any dispute. Daniel is a member of the Rugby Football Union’s independent judicial panel which determines disciplinary and regulatory issues within the sport of Rugby Union.
Seems to be on every matter we are working with them on, however, able to shoulder the caseload. A real superstar and workhorse
Me in a minute
I enjoy trying to find a practical and meaningful solution to some very difficult and emotive situations.
It is a great challenge dealing with new business sectors or personal circumstances every day but it is one which makes this particular job so enjoyable. Litigation can be a great mix between academic debate and sporting competition.
I am an active Rugby Union referee which means that my free time is also spent trying to negotiate a high stress environment where every judgment call I make is heavily scrutinised. I have been lucky enough to be able to combine my professional experience in law with my enjoyment of Rugby through an appointment to appear as a member of the independent disciplinary panel arranged by the RFU to determine disciplinary matters. This also gives me the different perspective of judging matters rather than just arguing them.
