David Robens.


As the head of our commercial practice, David is a confident and experienced solicitor, who will guide you through the law in the clearest possible way, to help you make the hard decisions.

He has done his time in both local and national law firms; working for both local and international clients. Through that David has gained insight into the disputes that can arise as well as the best way to assist.

David has gained a great deal of experience on his feet in the courts, in a broad range of commercial matters and all types of disputes.  He will present the strongest case through both formal hearings and negotiations.

Understanding that traditional law firms can be out of touch, inaccessible and expensive, David strives to move away from that stereotype, by being accessible and providing a strategy on the way forward, with estimates on costs being forecasted and updated.

See David and his team for assistance with all business and commercial matters, including; disputes, contracting, advice, alternate dispute resolution, banking and finance, consumer law and wills and estates.
