Profile

General Information

Christopher is an engaging and insightful lawyer with 30 years+ experience of all aspects of business-related disagreements and disputes. He is a Registered Mediator with the Civil Mediation Council.

He has most experience in shareholder, partner and family-business issues (including business transitions), joint ventures and partnerships, business financing (equity & debt), business contracts, professional services contracts, framework agreements, construction contracts and issues around the development, occupation and use of residential and commercial property. However, Christopher's experience is wide-ranging as a result of how his client-advisory practice has grown. He has developed a knowledge and skillset in the best traditions of the relationship-led, general legal practictioner. Christopher believes that the breadth of his experience problem-solving with people and their businesses is a strength that he can bring to parties hoping to resolve their commercial disputes promptly and cost-effectively.
