David Harrington
My practice is split between commercial litigation and professional indemnity litigation. In that regard I have conducted a wide range of commercial litigation including court and arbitration proceedings in relation to shareholder disputes; contractual claims; joint venture disputes; employment and trade secret disputes; and insolvency related matters. I also act regularly in professional indemnity claims involving solicitors; barristers; and accountants.
