Daniel is a senior associate in the litigation and arbitration team.
Daniel is an experienced litigation solicitor specialising in commercial disputes and arbitration. Daniel handles complex and multi-faceted legal cases which cover a range of different sectors and specialisms. He provides tailored and practical advice to clients depending on their specific commercial and legal requirements and tries to guide clients through the complexities and vagaries of the legal system.

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 acts for both Claimants and Defendants and his clients are most often high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals but he 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.

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.
