Alternative methods of contacting me during the Covid-19 situation: Like all my colleagues I am now working remotely. The good news is that you can contact me using various methods – use whatever you feel most comfortable with:
- Telephone – call my landline number shown above on this profile page (it will divert to my mobile); if I am engaged on another call, simply leave a message and I’ll return your call as soon as I can.
- Email – email me at my usual email address (shown here on this profile);
- Zoom – video call – if you would like a face to face video call I can let you have details of how to set this up very easily (and free of charge for you), using Zoom software (if you have not already got this on your mobile, iPad, laptop or PC, just send me an email to request this option);
- Royal Mail – post. We are still able to receive post but there will inevitably be a delay in using this method.
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.
