I moved to Archers, joining the litigation team in 2016 with already 7 years litigation experience under my belt working in Newcastle, having trained and qualified in Teesside. I decided to return to Teesside to join a strong and ambitious firm. The litigation team has seen a recent transformation which included my promotion to the role of Associate Solicitor.
Work wise I have been lucky to have been involved in high level litigation including dealing with a number of cases at the Court of Appeal.
Day to day I deal with a large variety of business disputes but particularly enjoy contentious property matters, insolvency and shareholders disputes. Recent successes include successfully defending a claim for alleged breach of employment covenants in a case with significant local interest.
I am proud to have been mentioned in the 2017 and 2018 edition of the legal 500.
