自己紹介

Away from work I can’t read crime novels or watch crime programmes as I always find myself too keen to solve the mystery long before the end, as well as pointing out the obvious flaws, to others dismay.

I specialise in white collar defence and investigations and have always enjoyed dealing with the power of the state in its many guises. Such power can be wielded lightly or with brute force, I ensure that it is wielded appropriately and that the necessary checks and balances are adhered to.

I am a great believer that people and organisations should be treated fairly and to that everybody should avail themselves of good advice when involved in or conducting an investigation.

Being the subject of an investigation can be overwhelming and being able to help clients in these difficult situations, reminding them that there is much they can do to defend themselves and robustly representing their interests is the main reason I entered the law.

These days I also enjoy helping clients navigate through the ever increasing regulatory and criminal framework that now impacts upon business and individuals alike.
