Michael Graduated in Law from Northumbria University in 2012 before starting his training contract at Jacksons in 2013. Before qualifying as a solicitor in 2015, he gained legal experience in a number of commercial departments and is therefore well placed to understand the demands placed on commercial entities, and the need to offer appropriate advice in line with client requirements.
Michael works closely with partner and head of Commercial Litigation and Debt Recovery, Toby Joel, and is personally responsible for a large caseload of litigious claims as well as acting for two of the firm’s major clients. He has a wealth of experience in debt recovery and enforcement matters for the firm’s clients who are based in the North East of England.
Michael also deals with contentious construction disputes on behalf of small/medium sized construction firms. In particular, Michael has assisted a number of clients through the court process and adjudication in relation to non-payment of invoices/payment applications, professional negligence, disputes relating to defects and retention recovery.
Outside of work Michael enjoys playing football, golf and squash.
