Ed is a solicitor with over a decade’s experience working in the law.   He qualified as a solicitor in 2009, having trained with a Top 100 UK firm, and has worked in private practice as a civil litigator for both individuals and large corporations.

Ed made the move to legal consultancy on a self-employed basis at the end of 2017 and now specialises in company, commercial and employment matters as well as dispute resolution.  He has a particular specialism in the area of data protection and has recently been helping a number of businesses review their policies and procedures and update their essential commercial documentation in light of the new GDPR requirements.

Ed is based near Liverpool in the North West of England but his client base stretches across the whole of the UK.

He says his key to success is Benjamin Franklin’s motto, ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’.   His years in litigation have shown him what can happen when things go wrong and how a little foresight and proactivity from the outset, can help avoid worst-case scenarios and prevent problems from happening in the first place.
