I qualified in 1994, am a Solicitor Advocate (2001) and CEDR Accredited Mediator (1996). I joined Buckles in 2003 having previously headed the commercial litigation team at a regional firm.

I specialise in commercial disputes of all types for national and international companies, as well as directors and shareholders in their personal capacities. I head the Buckles Dispute Resolution team, which has held a Legal 500 Top Ranking since 2004.

I accept appointments as a Mediator and also represent clients in mediation.
