Paul is our Professional Negligence and Personal Injury Consultant with over 30 years' experience of the law. He was latterly a Partner at Nicholson Davis Solicitors in Nottingham.

Paul entered the legal profession in 1975 before taking a sabbatical to gain a First Class Honours degree in law. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1983 and later qualified as a barrister in 1996.

Throughout his legal career Paul has specialised in conducting civil litigation, both as a solicitor and as a barrister, and therefore has a detailed and rather unique perspective of every stage of such cases. He has expertise in many areas of dispute resolution, including contractual disputes, professional and medical negligence claims and property disputes. He also has an excellent track record in handling personal injury claim at all levels.

Outside of work, Paul enjoys spending time with his wife and family and is very keen on landscape photography and cycling in the Peak District.


Bev is our practice manager.

Bev was latterly an Insolvency Director at Begbies Traynor in Nottingham. As such she has an insight into SME’s and other financial drivers and can give far more input than just managing the practice. She has decided to relinquish her insolvency past and has joined forces with us to provide an efficient and friendly service to ourselves and our clients.


Pip's expertise is corporate commercial and business law with over 20 years' experience. She has been a partner at Spearing Waite, Nelsons and Bray and Bray in Leicester.

Pip’s attributes include speed, efficiency and being able to multitask – an obvious advantage of being a woman! She is fluent in Italian and French and has Degree level German.

She is sympathetic to business needs having started and run her own business and also developed property abroad and in the buy-to-let market in the UK.  Pip pays attention to detail and above all has a caring and nurturing approach towards her clients.

Pip deals with international business matters without problem, often using her overseas contacts built up over many years. She has an equally vast network of UK contacts she has known personally for over 20 years including accountants, banks, business and other professionals.

A few more words about Pip – she is driven, persuasive, punchy, energetic and charismatic, a pocket sized battle ship, who is single minded, a bundle of energy, a box of fireworks, approachable.  She is most definitely hands on and rolls her sleeves up and is the one to have on your side with a quality reputation across the East Midlands.

She is also a Big Mac fan, and not the burger variety!
