Adrian Samuel

Senior Dispute Resolution Solicitor

Adrian has a 25+ years legal career under his belt exclusively served in litigation and closely allied areas. He has a passion for innovation in professional firms believing lawyers must do more than they have always done and do much of it better.

He has managed litigation teams and a caseload of sometimes high profile complex litigation – the Hillsborough tragedy and Zeebrugge ferry disaster being examples.

Adrian appreciates how difficult it can be to access justice and achieve good outcomes from dispute and disaster. Simplifying the complexity of litigation is one of his attributes.
