I joined our forensic practice in 2010 after completing my masters’ degree in maritime law. I have experience working on almost 50 separate forensic assignments including bribery, fraud, and corruption investigations, arbitrations, and litigations. I now specialise in complex international dispute resolution, looking at quantum of damages, business valuation, and loss of profits calculations.

I have a broad range of sector experience however in recent years I have mostly been involved in financial services, shipping, oil & gas, and energy & environment cases.

My experience includes:

  • ad hoc arbitration seated in The Bahamas opining on the financial state of various companies (including a multi-billion US$ Nigerian oil and gas business) which were transferred out of a trust
  • a high Court litigation relating to a solicitor’s professional negligence claim being brought by the manager of a pharmaceutical private equity fund
  • an investor-state arbitration involving a central European state
  • an LCIA arbitration between Ukrainian and Cypriot entities regarding failure to disclose financial obligations in a SPA
  • an LCIA arbitration relating to the termination of a drilling contract, offshore Libya
  • an ICC arbitration seated in Geneva in relation to breach of sole distribution rights of an escalator business in the Middle East.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my wife and one year old daughter visiting National Trust properties up and down the country. When time permits, I try and keep active through playing tennis and cycling.
