Owing to his experience as a solicitor, Martin is steeped in an understanding of the practical steps involved for lay clients and solicitors in pursuing disputes before the Courts. He is happy to be actively involved with solicitors from the outset in the litigation process and to adopt a ‘hands on’ approach to the work to be undertaken.
Martin has wide experience of disputes between commercial parties. He is frequently instructed in applications for interim injunctions including search orders and freezing injunctions.
The majority of Martin’s work in this area relates to the protection of confidential information and other business interests in the High Court on behalf of employers and defendant individuals. He is very experienced in relation to applications for interim relief in cases involving post-termination of employment restrictive covenants.
Recent examples of his work include his acting for the former technical director of the McLaren Formula One team in the so-called Spygate litigation; acting for a leading insurance brokerage in defence of claims of inducing breach of contract following their employment of various insurance brokers; search order and recovery of sensitive confidential information for a defence contractor and a contested High Court bonus claim.
Martin’s background as a solicitor has led to him acting for firm and individual or teams of partners in disputes affecting partnerships and limited liability partnership entities. He has also been instructed to carry out internal investigations for leading professional service firms.
