Christian has expertise in commercial and property litigation including contract of sale disputes, constructive and resulting trusts, establishing and enforcing equitable mortgages and charges, lease disputes enforcement and termination of lease, re-entry, and recovery of rent and repayment of security.

Christian has experience and expertise to resolve matters early through informal negotiation and mediation, but also, to litigate a matter to conclusion. He also has experience in insolvency including bankruptcy and liquidation.

I am challenged by any opportunity to solve a problem by looking for the needle in the haystack. Success under those circumstances I consider meaningful and rewarding.
