About David

What do you do?

I’m a problem-solver. I chart the best possible course to navigate my clients through their legal problems.

It’s all about cutting through complex issues quickly and commercially to develop the right strategy – one that stands the test of time. I specialise in:

  • Litigation

I’ve never lost a trial – a fact on which I pride myself. I have a wealth of experience within many different sectors, particularly financial services litigation.

Clients depend on my help with their contractual disputes (often multi-jurisdictional), shareholder disputes, fraud claims, recovering debts/other assets, and construction disputes.  

I also represent clients who face actions by UK regulators, such as the Competition and Markets Authority, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Pensions Regulator.

  • Risk Management

My driving purpose is helping business leaders to protect and maximise their profit by managing risks.

I work collaboratively with my clients to prepare their business for trials and investigations. My approach is holistic, from building business cultural strategies to making sure their contracts are compliant.

  • Crisis Management

When a business experiences a material threat to their profits or customers, it can feel like there’s no clear direction to turn. At times like these, I become an integral part of my client’s team. I design the winning strategy to solve the immediate problem and future-proof against further risks.

Make a difference.

I like to work with entrepreneurial people who want to find a better way. Often these are disruptive, tech-orientated businesses that are challenging the traditional models.

I’m a great believer in collaborating, and I’m not afraid to challenge clients on their approach to business. Their success is my priority.

Away from the office.

Making a difference for the future is important to me. I’m director and trustee of ProMo Cymru – a third sector digital technology company, working with young people. I’m also an officer in the Boys’ Brigade, leading the 16+ age group.

Get in touch.

The best part of my job is helping businesses to transform their challenges into assets. If you have a problem to solve, feel free to call me and let’s talk it through.
