I take an innovative, business-focussed and straightforward approach to commercial dispute resolution

Disputes and crises are an unfortunate reality in the running of any business but they don't have to be time-consuming and expensive to resolve.

With decades of experience in international mediation and litigation, I have the judgement to provide shrewd, no-nonsense guidance through almost any question raised in the running of a commercial or professional business. Much of my work in dispute resolution, risk analysis and crisis management has been in the global insurance and construction industries, but I have the proven ability to manage almost any commercial dispute or crisis.

I work quickly to build a picture of the landscape of a dispute, the priorities and needs of individuals, businesses, partners, companies and insurers involved. I don’t produce classic management answers, and I'm not always orthodox. I simply try to do whatever it takes to reach a positive, commercially and economically sensible solution for everyone involved.
