Having trained as a solicitor in all areas of business law, Gary specialised in commercial dispute management as a litigator from 1992. His career has seen him head commercial dispute resolution departments and being a partner in a major Birmingham solicitors’ firm.

As a litigator, Gary prides himself on getting to know his clients first and their difficulties later. In that way he can make recommendations which address the commercial as well as legal issues that they face.

Gary has a varied client base including construction companies and developers, charities, farmers, landowners, engineering firms, food processing companies, IT professionals, ecommerce companies, insolvency practitioners and health care organisations. Many are family owned businesses who welcome a close working relationship with Gary as a trusted adviser.

Gary is based in Hall Green in Birmingham but has clients across the UK and also handles disputes with international aspects, either for companies based overseas with problems in the UK or for UK companies operating abroad.

Outside of the law Gary enjoys travelling, visiting historic sites and wine tasting.

Client comments:

"The support, understanding and advice offered by Gary was invaluable. I always received quick and comprehensive responses even to my sillier questions and his empathic but business focused advice kept me grounded. Gary's involvement came at a late stage in the dispute and I wish that I had sought his input earlier - I'm not sure the situation would have resolved any sooner given the complex issues but I think I would have had fewer sleepless nights. In the nicest possible way I hope never to need Gary's assistance again, but I would certainly highly recommend him."
