After reading Law at Nottingham University where (apart from captaining the team on BBC2’s University Challenge!) he won the Nottingham Graduates Mooting Prize, Neil carried out his earlier training in London in the Chambers of Richard Ferguson QC.
With an extensive background in criminal fraud and road traffic cases, Neil is now applying his experience in claims of insurance fraud, whether it be staged/fake accidents or phantom passengers. In particular, he encourages and chairs early conferences with clients, assessing their credibility and to provide solicitors with a detailed assessment of their evidence in order to provide both oral and written advice as to tactics, required further lines of enquiry and a thorough testing of the evidence with a motto of leaving no stone unturned.
Neil is also an Advocacy Tutor and Teacher for Lincoln’s Inn, the Bar of Ireland, at the ICC in the Hague and at a member of the Faculty at the International Advanced Advocacy Course at Keble College, Oxford. He is also an Accredited Mediator and a Fellow of the Institute of CPD (managed by the RICS).
Neil is also fully qualified in obtaining instructions, providing advice and going to court on a Direct Access basis.
Outside of the law, Neil has a keen interest in sport and in particular skiing, cricket and hockey. He is a qualified England Hockey Level 3 coach and umpire.
