Commercial dispute resolution
Anthony’s expertise as a barrister in this field has been recognised by the independent directories for some years. He has been described as “very approachable” and “very understanding of the position of the client”.
Practising in Wales and the west of England, Anthony is contacted for advice or representation in relation to all manner of business matters where a significant difficulty between parties has arisen whether or not civil proceedings have actually started. Help may be needed in interpreting complex commercial contracts, in bringing a claim efficiently to enforce payment or to ensure that an obligation is fulfilled. On the other hand, advice may be asked for in defending what has been alleged.
A business may have a potential issue with a regulator in relation to how it is said that they are conducting their business: regulatory advice is also provided. Assistance can be given on non-contentious matters such as business procedures and the drafting of contracts.
Advice can also be given on alternative dispute resolution and practical advice upon how the matter can best be sorted out efficiently. Anthony is also an experienced mediator and therefore this informs the advice he provides.
Seeking advice early can frequently reduce costs and complications and therefore it usually wise to get in touch sooner rather than later.
“Barrister with a diverse practice which includes cases concerning statutory demands, injunction proceedings and construction disputes. He also receives a significant number of instructions in regulatory and fraud cases.”
Strengths: “He is always sensible and is a good operator.”
