Nicholas is the Deputy Head of the Dispute Resolution Department. He qualified as a solicitor in 1981 and has 37 years of post-qualification experience, many of them as a litigator. He joined Gordon Dadds from Davenport Lyons in 2014 and has particular expertise in retail motor industry disputes.
Nicholas also has considerable expertise in consumer, corporate and personal insolvency and employment law related matters, including advising on senior executive departures and restrictive covenants issues. His professional experience includes acting in the multi-jurisdictional Interoil SA cases in 2005 and 2006, involving a multi-million dollar claim, and an arbitration case that gave rise to ‘the Dadourian guidelines’ on the exercise of the court’s discretion to grant permission to a claimant seeking to enforce a Worldwide Freezing Order abroad.
He joined Ince from another leading law firm in 2014.
"No problem is the same and there is no “one size fits all” solution-minds are like parachutes-they work best when they are open. I keep an open mind and think laterally."
