An approachable and versatile solicitor providing clear and practical advice to clients.
I am an Associate in the commercial litigation team. I advise clients on a range of matters, including contract disputes, debts and judicial reviews. I am proficient at helping clients to resolve disputes in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. I can quickly assimilate and understand complex contractual documentation and give advice in an easily understandable manner.
Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors, I worked in local government where, for almost 11 years, I sat within the civil litigation team of the in-house legal service. During that time, I advised and represented the council in a wide array of court proceedings, including several high value, complex contractual disputes. My experience within local government means that I understand the pressures faced within our clients’ sectors and so tailor my advice to ensure that it is timely, commercial and easy to follow.
