Career

David is a highly-regarded commercial litigator.

He brings a wealth of experience to the successful resolution of clients’ commercial and corporate disputes. David specialises in litigation arising from high-value commercial contracts, the sale of shares and businesses, shareholder and LLP membership, commercial fraud, and director and senior employee relations. His cases are often multi-party and multi-jurisdictional.

Recent highlights have included David appearing as sole Counsel for Nick Candy in obtaining the dismissal of a £1.5billion commission claim and 100% of his costs and as junior counsel for the majority shareholders in House of Fraser in applying to strike out an unfair prejudice petition brought by a Mike Ashley vehicle.

Chambers & Partners have listed David for many years as one of the country’s leading practitioners. He is one of a small number of Counsel recommended for his expertise both in commercial dispute resolution and company law disputes.

Previous editions have recorded market feedback that David is “a brilliant barrister” with “strategic brilliance beyond his years”. He is “excellent to work with”, “very able, user-friendly and incredibly bright” as well as “impressive in court”. He “always provides clear and commercial advice” and is “definitely someone you want on your team”.
