Dispute resolution is John's main expertise. Most of his cases are settled by negotiation, but he has taken appropriate cases to trial and, on occasion, to the Court of Appeal.

John is experienced in a range of commercial dispute resolution procedures including litigation, arbitration, ADR and statutory adjudication.

His particular interest is in technical, project-based matters which arise in engineering and IT. He often represents the professional parties and their insurers in such disputes. More recently, he has been involved in litigation arising out of Wembley stadium for a sub-contractor.

Deconstructing transactions as required by dispute resolution has given John a deep understanding of the structure and content of many types of agreement. He advises upon and drafts such agreements.
