Me in a minute

The most interesting aspect of my work is working with documents and finding and collating evidence, especially in cases of complex fraud. I enjoy the moment when documents start "talking" to me.

I specialise in commercial litigation and civil fraud. To me, the most interesting aspect of my work is working with documents and finding and collating evidence, especially in cases of complex fraud. I enjoy the moment when documents start "talking" to me. I probably read too many Sherlock Holmes books when I was a child and I like working with private investigators. Their work is essential in some cases, particularly when opponents create opaque ownership structures to try to hide their assets.
