He has 35 years’ experience of all types of commercial litigation disputes. Carl was previously a solicitor, and headed the commercial litigation team at international law firm Pinsent Masons, having been appointed as one of its youngest partners when aged only 29. Carl amassed considerable commercial business experience having managed the then largest department in Pinsent Masons; been the office managing partner of that firm’s Manchester office and the head of its international Plc and Manufacturing Sectors.

During his career he has handled hundreds of cases with a very broad range of commercial disputes for national and international companies (listed and unlisted) professional partnerships, owner managed businesses, insolvency practitioners, banks and individuals including a range of fraud related disputes.

Carl recognises that whatever the size of the dispute – be it large or small, there are common features – usually the most important of which is to achieve an expeditious, cost-effective resolution. The important questions for a client are whether or not they going to win, how long it’s going to take and what it’s going to cost. He is acutely aware of the evaluation of risk inherent in litigation and the likelihood of success and return on the investment in time and costs involved in pursuing and/or defending litigation.

During his time as a solicitor Carl was regularly marked out by the leading legal journals, Chambers UK and Legal 500, as being in the top tier of commercial litigators in Birmingham and the Midlands. In December 2011, only 3 ½ years after being called to the Bar, Carl was singled out by Legal Week as one of the 10 most promising junior barristers under 10 years call in the whole of the UK.

By way of example, in 2015 CHAMBERS & PARTNERS praised the combination of his commercial skills, his technical ability and user-friendly nature, together with the ability to strike up a good rapport with clients.

He is also a practicing mediator with a high success rate of achieving settlements. He combines his technical and commercial experience with his mediation experience to guide clients through the minefield of litigation to achieve the best result for his clients.
