2.Fought the CEO of an international bank’s personal injury and disability complaints, achieving a very favourable exit package.

3.Navigated smooth exits for a group of senior LLP members at a big-four accountancy firm, avoiding expensive litigation and the enforcement of aggressive post-termination restrictions.
