Robert acts for a wide range of clients dealing with disputes in the County Court, High Court, specialist tribunals such as the Land Registry Property Chamber, and Arbitrations. He also handles mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Previously a director and Head of Dispute Resolution at a Legal 500 firm, he has extensive experience in a wide range of business and property disputes, as well as in private disputes and contested Wills and inheritance claims, so he is equally at home whether handling potentially sensitive private client issues or advising on the wider commercial implications of a complex dispute. He also has niche expertise in acting for recruitment businesses and residents’ management companies for prestigious residential estates, having built up a considerable client base in those fields over many years.
A committed and robust litigator, Robert has a tactical approach to disputes, but is also pragmatic, never losing sight of his clients’ ultimate objectives. His successful approach to handling disputes is reflected by the fact that most of his instructions come from repeat clients, referrals and recommendations – including from former opponents.
