MDLS Solicitors Limited

I am the Managing Director of Legal Studio, having set up the practice up in February 2014.  I have many years of expertise in commercial litigation & dispute resolution resulting in a wealth of experience in conducting litigation in court and resolving disputes out of court.  My experience covers most areas of business and contentious law, with clients ranging from sole-traders to multi-national companies.  I also act for individuals in certain specialist areas including co-habitation disputes & trusts.  Alongside fee-earning, I am responsible for the growth and development of Legal Studio, ensuring that the ethos of the firm is shared with the consultants who are associated with it.  I have clear ideas as to how legal services should be delivered and how a law firm should be run and I am keen for those ideas to be put into practice.  This includes developing and adopting new technologies and new ways of thinking.  By investing heavily in its people, Legal Studio strives to be a firm with a distinct reputation for attracting clients and fellow fee-earners alike.
