Harry came to the bar from a previous career in construction whilst he gained his academic qualifications. A wide knowledge base; professional pragmatism; and diligent pride in his work are features of Harry’s practice.

Harry’s practice has evolved across a spectrum of areas whilst at Oriel, including EL and PL personal injury, industrial disease and clinical negligence work; he specialised in the latter during his PhD studies.

His Research Masters focused upon director’s fiduciary duties and Management Buyouts, whilst his prior experience in construction management introduced him to the real face of construction contracts and construction disputes.

His ToLATA knowledge brought him into close contact and fits finely with his Family Finance work. The suite of contentious works that the family unit encounters is finished with his probate practice.
