As head of our International Dispute Resolution Group in London, I help our international clients to find innovative solutions to complicated and challenging problems.
For over 30 years, my practice has covered an extremely wide range of complex disputes for clients ranging from global corporates to high net worth individuals, in sectors spanning insurance, infrastructure, engineering and beyond. These disputes have included numerous upstream energy, power and mining projects, rail, water and marine claims in many different parts of the world.
I have acted in high profile international investigations involving regulatory and prosecutorial bodies including HMRC, SFO and FSA/FCA and have extensive experience of tax investigations, and bribery and corruption investigations and prosecutions. In addition to fraud cases, I have also dealt with contentious trust disputes, Companies Act offences, duties of directors and partnership disputes.
Having worked extensively in Latin America, I have responsibility for Bird & Bird's initiatives both in that region and in Turkey, where I have over 20 years' experience.
As well as dealing with commercial litigation, I am a member of the International Arbitration Group and have managed international arbitrations, investment treaty arbitrations and energy charter treaty arbitrations.
