Lawyer - DWS Legal
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Commercial / Business Law
I am a commercial litigation solicitor, specialising in resolving business and workplace disputes.
I am head of the firm’s dispute resolution department which consists of seven fee earners. I qualified in Northampton and worked for a number of respected law firms within the region. I have also obtained a qualification in business mentoring and coaching.
I am a “people person” with a “can do” approach to my work, and play a pivotal role as the firm's Client Relationship Manager, training and developing staff, as well as protecting the legal interests of my clients.
The Litigation team deals with the resolution of trade disputes arising between businesses, their clients, and suppliers, including infrastructure conflict, and regulatory infringement.
The success of the department is based on Austin’s philosophy of taking the “emotion” out of litigation to diffuse sensitive issues such as breaches of contract, professional service agreements, unpaid invoices, IP infringement and finding proactive, commonsense practical solutions in a cost effective and timely manner.
Wherever possible, Austin will use his “know how” to help his clients to avoid legal disputes and he has extensive experience of providing dedicated litigation support to pursue or defend claims when instructed to do so.
