My expe­ri­ence includes com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion, debt recov­ery, insol­ven­cy mat­ters, build­ing and con­struc­tion dis­putes, prop­er­ty relat­ed dis­putes as well as dis­putes per­tain­ing to restraints of trade. My focus is to help clients nav­i­gate through com­plex com­mer­cial dis­putes and achieve excel­lent outcomes.
