Using only the best barristers and experts, his caseload typically involves cases valued over £100,000 but takes a special interest, regardless of value, in the more difficult and complex cases and actively encourages Defendant Trusts and their solicitors to engage in ADR, undertaking his first successful mediation 15 years ago.
