I am a solicitor within the dispute resolution department at Paris Smith. Having trained and qualified with another local regional law firm, I moved to Paris Smith in February 2019 in order to focus on a specialism in insolvency & corporate restructuring under Mike Pavitt.
I currently assist on all matters of insolvency and bankruptcy including rights of trustees and liquidators, director’s misfeasance, transactions at an undervalue, fraudulent & wrongful trading and transactions defrauding creditors.
My experience is primarily within the remit of contract, commercial & debt recovery litigation where I take a pragmatic and cost proportionate approach in order to ensure on the best financial outcome for my clients. Whilst it is not always possible to prevent disputes from escalating to the point of proceedings being issued, my strong understanding of the court process allows me to help advise clients as to their available options; which may include alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation or further negotiation.
I hope to transfer those skills gained throughout my prior practice into the world of insolvency to enable me to provide clients with quality technical advice and the best course of action when the need to litigate arises.
It was a pleasure working with you and I really appreciate the work you did for me on this. If I ever need a lawyer, I know who to reach!

Recently I encountered a problem with an offshore company which we have dealt with for some years but became very concerned with the outcome of our dispute as it involved issues involving intellectual property, employment and business contracts. The team at Paris Smith went out of their way to guide me through a maze of applicable law to arrive at an amicable agreement with the other side. I have no problem in recommending the team and I am very glad they are on my side

They say that when we’re going through turmoil and feel like the entire world is crashing down around us, one way of getting through this is by turning our focus to all things we are grateful for. I have been very fortunate and am ever so grateful to have had your guidance and support. Thank you very much!
