Overview

Robin undertakes work in all aspects of business and property. As a CEDR-accredited mediator, Robin looks for pragmatic and cost-effective solutions. At the same time, when the need arises, Robin is a tenacious and effective court room advocate. His areas of expertise include:

  • sales of goods and supplies of services
  • construction claims
  • franchising
  • insurance
  • individual insolvency
  • economic torts
  • restitutionary claims
  • directors' liabilities

Much of his work is advisory and so unreported. His recent cases include a Commercial Court dispute concerning the destruction of stored oats; the 'Thakrar litigation', a five-year-long saga involving fraud, insolvency in almost all forms (bankruptcy, receiverships, administrations) and a multi-million pound property company; anti-competitive practices in the pharmaceutical industry; company fraud centred on horseracing; disputes within motor industry trade associations and franchise groups; complex franchising disputes in the recruitment industry, and claims against solicitors, accountants and surveyors.

Robin accepts work from individuals and companies under public access. Where it is still available he welcomes legal aid instructions. He accepts instructions under Conditional Fee Agreement.
