Called to the Bar – 1993

Michael was called to the bar in 1993 following a successful career in the financial services sector and is therefore able to bring a substantial degree of practical know how to his commercial legal practice. His clients have found this to be particularly valuable in relation to commercial disputes, taxation advice and the drafting of legal documents including complex shareholder agreements, sale agreements and intellectual property licenses.

In contentious litigation he has represented claimants and defendants in consumer law cases, property cases, commercial law and chancery matters. These have included residential, commercial and agricultural landlord and tenant disputes.

In property related matters he has assisted clients in resolving boundary disputes, disputes relating to restrictive covenants and in chancery matters he has represented clients in partnership disputes and in the administration of estates and trusts.

He is experiences in representing corporate clients in insolvency matters including contested winding up petitions and administration petitions.

He has represented clients in professional negligence cases involving surveyors, solicitors and architects.

Alongside his commercial practice Michael runs a healthy general common law practice including all aspects of personal injury work (including medical negligence), road traffic accidents, industrial accidents and diseases, employers and public liability. He is also available to represent private clients and insurance companies in coroners inquests.

In addition to this busy practice Michael remains involved in training and education as a guest lecturer at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
