Nicholas qualified as a solicitor in 1981 and has 38 years post qualification experience, all of them as a litigator, including also heading an employment law department and dealing with contentious and non contentious aspects of employment law. He joined Ince Gordon Dadds from Davenport Lyons in 2014.

Nicholas has over 38 years’ experience specialising in dispute resolution. He advises in commercial disputes across a wide range of industry sectors, predominantly acting for SMEs, and has particular experience in the retail automotive sector.
