I joined QualitySolicitors Edward Hughes in 2000 and am now the joint head of the Civil Department.
Within the Department, the bulk of my work is now in relation to "dispute resolution" in most civil litigation matters. Whether this be acting for clients bringing a claim, or defending them. Such claims can involve challenging a Will, or a claim against an estate, 'Tolata' type cases, or those involving any dispute over an entitlement in a property.
My work also includes Employment Law cases, acting for employers or the employee. For employers, we offer a step by step process, to act as if we were an "in house" HR or Legal Department guiding through disciplinary or other processes, including any Employment Tribunal, if required. Likewise, for an employer, we can advise and assist in pursuing a claim up to and including any Employment Tribunal. I also regularly act in cases where a compromise or settlement agreement is involved.
I also undertake most general litigation/business matters. This work is for both invidivuals and businesses including: disputes through Civil Courts, Debt Collection, Negligence Claims for products supplied or services provided, Landlord and Tenant work, Partnership Disputes, drafting general business documents and advising in relation to the same. I act, and have acted, for a number of local businesses, both large and small, in a variety of business related matters.
The Department also deals with Personal Injury and Accident cases. Such claims include those of a high value and complexity, for all types of accident and also medical, or dental negligence claims. My aim is to ensure that clients receive any necessary treatment and recover the maximum amount of compensation with the minumum of stress and fuss.
