I joined the firm in 1994 as a solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Department. I went on to become a Partner in 2000 and subsequently Managing Partner of the Leicester branch in 2004. In 2005 I qualified as an accredited Commercial Mediator with ADR Group Ltd.
In 2014 I launched an online service, www.ClaimsAgainst.co.uk, which has been designed to right the wrongs of professionals who have been negligent.
My committed Professional Negligence team are ranked in the Legal 500 and I am proud to be one of only 4 recommended lawyers in the East Midlands for Professional Negligence work, with a recommendation for my "very detailed approach" and "excellent client handling".
Beyond the office, I enjoy cycling, baking and playing the piano.
