Robert has a wide civil practice for which his previous career in the City as an institutional fund manager for a major UK Life Assurance company provided a strong foundation. He is ever-alert to the needs of the client and the practicalities of the case.
He acts for solicitors, trust practitioners and accounting firms and directly for members of the public, through the Public Access Scheme.
Robert has for several years been instructed also in personal injury cases, including credit hire, by both major insurance companies and firms of solicitors.
Although he has vast experience as an advocate at all levels of tribunal, Robert is also routinely instructed for advice and the drafting of court documents.
Recent examples of his work include a successful appeal against the imposition of a tax penalty against an individual by HMRC, the removal of an executor, advice on the interpretation of Wills, and CGT consequences of the sale of a large estate.
He was recently awarded a 5/5 for level of service to the client and knowledge of law by a Lexcel accredited Solicitor’s firm. He is a specialist examiner for the Securities Institute.
