My experience

Having read law at University College London, I was called to the Bar at Middle Temple. After about five years in practice I transferred and re-qualified as a solicitor. I later returned to the Bar, took silk and became Head of Chambers at 29 Bedford Row. I had a successful career conducting a wide range of commercial and civil litigation including partnership and shareholder disputes. I was appointed as a Recorder and from time to time sat as an Arbitrator. Eventually I became a Circuit Judge and was also authorised to sit as a High Court Judge in the Queens
Bench Division.

I have a wealth of experience specialising in commercial and corporate litigation but am also skilled in other types of dispute resolution.

Over many years  I have also dealt with a range of professional negligence cases. Primarily they involved architects and engineers, accountants, solicitors and clinical negligence.


How I’ve helped our clients

Peter Ralls QC is a seasoned veteran of commercial litigation, bringing with him a rare insight into both sides of the table. The more complex and adversarial the dispute - the less I would want him on the other side.

This short note is to acknowledge the high degree of expertise and professionalism exhibited by both Peter Ralls QC and Oliver Brady, solicitor, in resolving for me a dispute which had previously rolled on for a long period of time. It has provided me with a great deal of confidence to know, as I do, that they were both firmly on my side and so my sincere thanks to them both.
