Tim has built up an extensive practice over a number of years, the main areas of which concern disputes in these areas:

  • Commercial and Chancery
  • Civil Fraud and Asset Tracing
  • Professional Negligence (principally, solicitors, barristers, auditors/accountants and bankers)
  • Banking and Securities
  • Equity and Trusts
  • Sports Claims
  • Partnership and LLP
  • Insolvency
  • Regulatory

This has inevitably involved much experience in the interlocutory relief and arbitration spheres.

Most recent cases include:

  • A high value breach of warranty claim, in which he represented the Defendant and which was discontinued at an early stage
  • A breach of warranty claim following a share sale agreement, which was successfully compromised
  • A substantial solicitors’ negligence action, in which he appeared for the Claimant and obtained summary judgment and substantial damages
  • A dispute concerning a league cricket club and its future participation in its County League
  • A contractual claim against a prominent financial services LLP on behalf of the Claimant, which resulted in a substantial financial settlement.

Additionally, he has been an appointed arbitrator in commercial disputes and qualified, with ADR Chambers in the mid-1990’s, as an accredited mediator.

Tim is also admitted to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (Territory of the British Virgin Islands), where he has appeared regularly.

He has been a regular contributor on a variety of sports-related matters on commercial and BBC radio.
