I qualified as a Mediator in 2006. About 45% of my mediation work is Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury disputes including multi-party catastrophic injury claims and fatal injury claims. Another 45% involves probate disputes and the rest are miscellaneous matters.
I qualified as a Solicitor in 1991 and practised as a claimant lawyer with Thompsons (Liverpool & Manchester) and Russell Jones & Walker (Manchester). I specialised in employers’ liability claims including stress and disease cases.
In 2016/2017 I was a consultant solicitor to the Asbestos and Chest Disease Department at Slater & Gordon Lawyers.
I am the Independent Secretary to the ABI GTA Technical Committee (Credit Hire), a volunteer on the Lancashire Constabulary Restorative Justice Panel and a freelance CPD trainer on mediation.
