Tim Clayton

Consultant Solicitor

Having joined Dunn & Baker Solicitors in March 2024, Tim is a Consultant Solicitor in the firm’s Dispute Resolution Department. With over 25 years’ experience, Tim has previously been an accredited Mediator of Commercial Disputes.

Tim obtained his Training Contract through first becoming a relief typist for 2 weeks, qualifying as a solicitor in 1998. Having risen to Partner level in that same firm, he studied for and obtained a Master’s Degree in Advanced Litigation (LL.M) from the world-renowned Nottingham Law School in 2002. 

With a career spanning over 25 years, Tim has developed expertise in a wide variety of disciplines including:

  • Building and construction disputes;
  • Commercial contracts, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation;
  • Intellectual property disputes;
  • Employment advice and disputes representing employers, employees and workers;
  • Contested wills, probate claims and Inheritance Act disputes;
  • Commercial property claims;
  • Commercial and private landlord and tenant disputes;
  • Interpretation of leases and covenants;
  • Rights of way and boundary disputes.

Tim focuses on solutions which are in his clients’ best interests, rather than proceeding along a pre-determined path. He is realistic with clients concerning the litigation process and aims to set out clearly what can and cannot be achieved. Court proceedings should always be a last resort as they are invariably stressful, time consuming and costly. Having said this, he takes a robust approach on his clients’ behalf wherever and whenever appropriate.
