Call 2006

"He is an absolute super-brain, but he is also extremely approachable and friendly."
(Chambers & Partners 2017)

Commercial

David has experience of general commercial litigation, generally involving contractual disputes.

Sale Of Goods & Supply Of Services

He has acted in many claims arising out of sale of goods transactions or those involving the supply of services. His recent experience includes: the successful defence at trial of a claim against an IT company arising out of the alleged failure of a wifi internet system sold to a hotel; acting for insurers pursuing recovery actions against the manufacturers of various goods (from allegedly defective patio chairs to allegedly defective bouncy castles) which have failed, causing property damage or personal injury; and advising on a claim arising out of allegedly defective light fittings. David has frequently advised on the papers and in conference on experts’ evidence in relation to such matters.

David also acted as sole counsel in a claim in the High Court (which subsequently settled) against a major bank arising out of alleged impropriety in the lending of sums of money. The claim involved allegations of dishonesty, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence.

Estate Agency

David has particular experience in claims brought by estate agents for the non-payment of vendors’ commission. This experience includes a three day trial against a vendor who was found to have avoided commission on the sale of his property by selling it privately to purchasers who had been shown around the property by the agent. He has considerable experience in claims where there may be a dual fee liability on the vendor, and claims in which there is a dispute as to whether the agent introduced the purchaser to the sale transaction itself. David also frequently advises in relation to the recovery of sales commission on lettings, including disputes as to commission at renewal.
