Partner & Deputy Head of Civil & Commercial Litigation
English, Gujarati, Hindi
I have over 25 years of experience in commercial litigation and insolvency disputes. I have advised on and litigated cases which involve, contract disputes for debt recovery, disputes involving legal charges, equitable charges and charging orders resulting in orders for sale. I have extensive experience relating to trust disputes in property litigation. I also act for Factors and Invoice Discounters in recovering assigned debts and defending complex actions. In this area, I also have experience in dealing with set off disputes, guarantor disputes and injunctions pertaining to the dissipation of assets.
I have a particular specialism in contentious insolvency work. Having previously worked for a big four accountancy firm, I have the hands-on experience and know the need of a commercial mindset in this area. I advise on corporate and personal insolvency disputes and can bring actions to recover assets under the Insolvency Act, mostly acting for Insolvency Practitioners. I also have experience in advising creditors in situations where they have suffered a bad debt or have clients who are struggling to pays debts. Often creditors consider that they have lost their money when insolvency of one of their clients occurs but I can advise creditors on the best way forward which could result in a recovery.
With the majority of my instructions coming from Insolvency Practitioners, I am well placed to assist directors, debtors and bankrupts on actions against them and able to advise on the best approach.
I am commercially minded and will always strive to obtain the best result for my client ensuring transparency at all times on costs.
