Daniel’s practice covers all of South Square’s area of expertise, including cross-border insolvency and restructuring, commercial litigation and arbitration, banking and finance, bankruptcy and personal insolvency, offshore and fund litigation, civil fraud, company law, and trusts.

Daniel is instructed in high-profile commercial litigation, often with an insolvency element.  He acted as junior counsel for the successful joint administrators of Force India Formula Team in Uralkali PJSC v Rowley and Baker [2020] EWHC 3442 (Ch) (with Jonathan Crow QC, in a team of four), dismissing allegations of negligence and breach of confidence after a two-week trial.  Daniel is currently instructed in high-value proceedings relating to the enforcement of security (with Alain Choo-Choy QC and Marcus Haywood).

Daniel has a developing specialist restructuring practice, including restructuring plans under Part 26A, schemes of arrangement under Part 26, and CVAs, and has experience of landlord restructurings.  Daniel acted company-side in the National Car Parks Limited [2021] EWHC 1653 (Ch) restructuring plan (with Tom Smith QC and Henry Phillips).  He is a contributor to the specialist publication Company Voluntary Arrangements (OUP, 2022).

Daniel acts and advises in relation to a wide range of insolvency and company law matters, often with cross-border elements.  He is familiar with a variety of claims and applications under the Insolvency Act 1986 and the Companies Act 2006, including winding-up petitions, unfair prejudice petitions, directions applications, claims based on breach of directors’ duties, office-holder and transaction avoidance claims, rescission applications, and applications to set aside statutory demands.

Daniel is also instructed in commercial and civil matters without any insolvency element, and is familiar with a variety of applications under the CPR, including applications for summary judgment, interim relief, and injunctive relief.

Prior to starting practice, Daniel was a Judicial Assistant in the High Court, based in the Chancery Division, from October 2019 until January 2020.
