I have been a Partner of Howes Percival since 1989 and I am Head of Commercial Litigation at the Firm's office in Norwich (we have other offices in Northampton, Leicester and Milton Keynes). We are a large legal firm. There are over 20 litigation specialists based in Norwich. I have dealt with litigation work since qualifying as a Solicitor in 1981.
I have been involved in a broad range of cases, many of which have been high in value and complexity. They include:-
Business contract disputes, including partnership and shareholder disputes
Professional negligence claims, mainly claims against solicitors and surveyors
Landlord and tenant and property litigation
Trusts and probate disputes and Inheritance Act claims
I also have past experience of personal injury and medical (clinical) negligence litigation.
Educated at Norwich School and Jesus College, Cambridge
22 years' experience of Court work
CEDR accredited mediator (accredited in 1999)
Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators
Director of Mediators in East Anglia
President of the Norfolk & Norwich Law Society 2002/2003
Member of the Negligence Panel of the Office for the Supervision of Solicitors
Named as a leading lawyer for commercial litigation in the Legal 500 Guide to UK Law Firms, in Legal Business' directory of Legal Experts and in the Chambers' Guide to the Legal Profession
My mediation fees depend upon the nature of the dispute, the number of parties involved and where the mediation is to be held (rooms at Howes Percival's offices are available for use if appropriate).
