I am a partner in the Business Disputes team, having worked for Paris Smith since I first qualified as a solicitor. During that time, I have worked exclusively in the Business Disputes team, dealing in both civil and criminal areas of law.

I specialise in regulatory work where I represent a variety of businesses, companies and individuals in business related criminal law, dealing with the Health & Safety Executive, local authorities and other prosecution agencies.  

I have wide experience in dealing with road traffic offences from both a company and individual perspective.  I also deal with all aspects of alcohol licensing under the Licensing Act 2003, to include both new applications and applications for review before the local authority and if necessary appeals in the Magistrates Court.

I have also advised administrators and liquidators on licensing aspects of businesses into liquidation/administration.  

My clients include regional and national businesses as well as individuals, charities and in-house legal departments.

I have provided advice and attended interviews under the Police Criminal Evidence Act with both regulatory authorities and the Police.  I regularly provide representation at Inquests and in subsequent court proceedings.

I am a member of the Health & Safety Lawyers Association and have been a member of the Law Society’s Money Laundering Task Force since 2012.
