I am a Senior Associate Solicitor and an Advocate with over 24 years experience. I specialise in property litigation and have experience in all areas of property disputes, acting for freeholders, landlord and tenants. As a solicitor advocate I have a great deal of practice in preparing a case for trial and presenting it to the Court, and I focus on trying to achieve the best possible final result, as efficiently as possible, from the outset of any instruction.
I have acted for clients at every level of hearing, from hearings before Property Tribunals to the Privy Council, and in proceedings involving both residential and commercial property. I have also acted for clients to achieve settlements through Alternative Dispute Resolution, and believe strongly in seeking to realise a client’s objectives through negotiation if possible, and by robust presentation in proceedings if not.
I joined Bowling & Co in 2012. I have a background as a civil litigator with a sound working knowledge of other areas of including general contract and tort disputes, employment law and insolvency. I have Higher Rights of Audience, allowing me to represent clients in any Court (both civil and criminal) ensuring a seamless handling of the case, thorough analysis, fair and candid advice and skilled presentation.
Outside work, I am a father of two children, a keen reader, and a licensed Lay Minister in the Church of England.
