I am the managing partner of FPG Solicitors and am an experienced litigator and advocate responsible for all areas of litigation and commercial law in the practice. I have gained extensive experience in all areas of litigation and have particular expertise in large Banking and Finance cases and those of Professional Negligence. I also have experience in representing clients in relation to both High Court civil and serious criminal fraud allegations. My litigation experience is both in claimant and defendant work.
Since the inception of FPG Solicitors I have amassed further experience in the field litigation and regulatory claims and was responsible for leading our team against the four major banks in relation to the mis-selling of Interest Rate Hedging Products. The claims proved to be successful for a large number of SMEs returning substantial sums of money in damages and consequential losses.
Currently specialising in High Court Litigation Claims against financial institutions, I am experienced in acting against magic and silver circle firms such as Clifford Chance, DLA, Hogan Lovells, Addleshaw Goddard, and Dentons. I am also experienced in litigating professional negligence claims against other professionals including solicitors and medical professionals. I have settled a number of large and complex cases and continue to represent others in the High Court both defending and bringing claims.
As well as litigation matters I have experience in drafting company and commercial contacts, regulatory manuals and other documents for SMEs. I have gained experience in advising SMEs on many legal issues relevant to running a business in a litigious and regulation heavy society and have assisted businesses utilise agreements, contracts and other documents so as to assist in their smooth running. I utilise my knowledge and experience in contract law to better provide advice in relation to contracts and other documents which SMEs require on a day-to-day basis.
Following leaving employment as a solicitor at David Phillips & Partners I undertook litigation and advocacy work for a number of law firms in relation to mainly fraud matters. I dealt with serious cases in relation to claims brought by the FSA and Her Ma
I specialise in working with SMEs and individuals in relation to claims they may have against professionals and large institutions. I am experienced in bringing claims in the High Court and the County Court and have particular expertise in Banking & Finance claims and also in Professional Negligence. I also advise and deal with claims in the regulatory arena and have particular expertise in claims made to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
My experience also lends itself to defending claims brought against SMEs and individuals especially in cases where fraud has been alleged.
I have also advised SMEs in relation to non-litigious issues with which they require assistance in relation to regulatory issues and also contract drafting and corporate related matters such as shareholder and partnership agreements.
