Dale has a strong commercial chancery practice with a particular emphasis on property, insolvency, and commercial cases which often include civil fraud/asset recovery. He has significant advocacy experience having acted as sole counsel in the County Court, High Court, Upper Tribunal, and Court of Appeal.
Often praised for his attention to detail, commitment, and organised approach, Dale takes a calm and considered view to all cases, combining his legal knowledge with a commercial approach. He is not afraid to advise clients realistically about prospects and financial implications. In court, he is a robust litigator and does not shy away from pursuing a difficult argument.
Dale has undertaken (led and unled) advisory and drafting work for some very high-profile clients. He understands the need for confidentiality and the importance of avoiding litigation in such cases to address the commercial and practical needs of the client.
Passionate about enhancing access to justice for all, Dale actively engages in pro bono work. He is on the Advocate panel and is a supervising lawyer at BPP’s Enterprise Clinic. Additionally, Dale is able to accept instructions on a direct access basis.
