Duncan is a commercial disputes lawyer, with experience of courts and arbitral tribunals in the UK, the EU, Switzerland, the Caribbean, the Middle East and the US. He has particular expertise in financial services disputes, fraud and asset recovery, insolvency and restructuring.
Duncan took a First from Pembroke College, Oxford. He is an experienced litigator who trained at 4 Stone Buildings and practised as a barrister at 13 Old Square for a number of years, before joining Addleshaw Goddard. He has also practised as an attorney in the Cayman Islands with Walkers. He is a straight-talker who likes to get to the point, and to help his clients find practical solutions to their legal problems. He enjoys putting a case before a court or tribunal and loves to win, but is equally good at getting results for clients by negotiating. His past experience includes working with investment funds and investors, banks and their customers, major corporates, small and medium size businesses, and individuals. He has been involved in one of the biggest conspiracy and corporate espionage cases ever to come before an English Court, as well as a major class action (group litigation).
Outside of work, Duncan lives in London and likes spending time with his family. He doesn’t own a dog. He watches but no longer participates in boxing matches.
