I have spent almost a quarter of a century as a court-based family lawyer. I have seen how, with dwindling resources and an ever increasing case load, the courts are struggling to provide the service most litigants want.

I firmly believe that arbitration is the key to unlocking the majority of family disputes quickly, cost-efficiently and confidentially.

I am experienced in all areas relating to family finance: married or unmarried, gay or straight. I have a great deal of experience in cases involving significant wealth but am also keen to arbitrate in cases where the assets are more modest.

I am bilingual in French and am happy to receive documentation without it being translated (this can save significant amounts in translation fees). I am also happy to conduct arbitrations in French if that assists and am happy to sit in France, Belgium or Switzerland. Please note, however, that only English law may be applied and my written award will be given in English (although I am happy to approve a translation to ensure that it is a faithful reproduction).
