I am an Associate at Gamlins LLP Solicitors, specialising in Litigation and Licensing.
I studied Russian Language and Literature at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London and from there began my career in international banking in the City of London.
I studied law in evening classes whilst working full-time in the legal department of the Business Banking Division of a major bank. I qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1999 and at this point moved into private practice dealing with civil and commercial litigation. I then continued my studies to qualify as a solicitor.
Since 2001 I have also practiced regulatory law. I have experience of assisting individuals and businesses with issues which concern alcohol licensing and operator licensing, covering such matters as applications to obtain a licence, variations to an existing licence and appearing at hearings where a breach is alleged.
I now have over two decades of dispute resolution experience guiding clients through complicated disagreements over business contracts, commercial disputes and emotionally charged issues over land and assets.
I am always happy and personable. I put my clients first and build strong client relationships.
I pride myself on a pragmatic and cost-effective advice, encouraging early settlement wherever possible.
