Joshua’s work for both Plaintiff’s and Defendant’s places him in a unique position to advise his clients about what to expect throughout all steps of their claim.

With a keen interest in international law, he has also successfully recovered significant compensation for a paraplegic client who was injured on a cruise ship in a foreign jurisdiction. He is currently involved in litigation on behalf of victims of the New Zealand White Island volcano eruption.
