I am a solicitor within the Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency team, which sits structurally within Paris Smith’s Business Disputes department. 

My day-to-day practice encompasses all aspects of:

  • bankruptcy & insolvency litigation;
  • restructuring; and
  • insolvency law and practice.

This work includes matters relating to rights of trustees and liquidators, rights of bankrupt individuals and associated third-parties, director’s misfeasance, transactions at an undervalue, preferences and transactions defrauding creditors.

I am the head of R3’s Southern and Thames Valley New Professionals subcommittee, having been appointed in December 2019.

My work on bankruptcy and insolvency matters is supplemented by a general litigation practice which covers:

  • commercial disputes;
  • contract disputes; and
  • debt recovery.

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.

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.

It's been a pleasure working with you and as a result, I'd like to think I've found my legal representative firm for the foreseeable future.

Mr R

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!

Mrs P, London

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!
