"I am a commercial litigation lawyer with a special interest in contractual disputes, consumer disputes and reputational management.”

I am an Associate in the commercial litigation team, having joined Higgs upon qualification in September 2022. Prior to joining Higgs, I worked at a law firm in Birmingham.

I have been advising on a range of commercial disputes. Typically, I assist clients in relation to contractual disputes, debt recovery, reputational management and consumer rights/remedies.

I act for individuals, partnerships and businesses of varying size.

  • Assisted on a team move breach of restrictive covenant case and was able to achieve a settlement that protected our client’s interests.
