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.

Litigation is not always an enjoyable experience for clients, but I try my best to minimise the personal or professional disruption it can cause by coming up with a clear and sensible strategy from the earliest possible stage. Being in a Court hearing is only a small part of the day-to-day life of a commercial litigator and analysing and preparing a case as carefully as possible is critical to getting the desired outcome if that hearing comes along, or to avoiding the hearing altogether.

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.
