Robert has extensive experience across a range of Legal fields enabling him to bring a considered approach to cases where others may only provide a narrow view. He has assisted in hearings at all levels which has given him a deep understanding of how the legal system works and how to achieve the best result whatever the circumstances.

When it is in the interest of the client Counsel attempts to resolve the dispute at the earliest stage to save needless costs. He has though taken matters through to the Court of Appeal and where needed he will pursue the client’s case as far as necessary to achieve the best result.

Renowned for his client care and empathy, Robert is also a tenacious advocate and negotiator who ensures that clients know their corner has been fought. He operates with an awareness that often parties involved will need to find conciliation in order to maintain a relationship beyond the proceedings.

Counsel has a flexible working approach, happy to work digitally and travel for hearings and conferences. He is keen to engage in an early conference with client to establish the best path forward early on in proceedings.

Robert regularly receives Public Access Instructions where his clear, focused assistance and strong advocacy is of benefit to those litigating their own cases. Robert is also eligible to conduct litigation on a Public Access basis.

Other Interests

Robert can often be found being dragged round a field in all weathers by his dog Roscoe! As a single parent the majority of his time is devoted to his children but if any minutes are left spare in the day, Robert spends them on DIY and property renovation projects. Other interests Robert wishes he had time for include history, architecture, painting – both viewing and painting his own, theatre and travel.
