Costs Lawyer and Consultant. I became a Salaried Partner in 1995 and Equity Partner in 2000. Together with a business partner, we formed Total Legal Limited which operates the Gibbins brand. Following the retirement of my business partner, I became sole shareholder and Managing Director of the company in 2014.
I am an active member of my local Parish Church and am currently in my third tenure as Church Warden over a 25 year period. This has resulted in valuable additional experience in dealing with various groups in a non-business setting. I have responsibility for the care and upkeep of a Norman Church, ensuring that its integrity as an ancient building is not compromised, whilst ensuring that it remains relevant and user-friendly for the congregation of today. I also fulfil the role of Lay Vice Chair of the PCC. In addition, I am also an active member of the Church’s music group, playing bass guitar and overseeing the audio-visual aspects of the worship.
Together with my wife, I ran a young person’s residential venture in North Wales for nine years where we provided many outdoor, sport and craft based activities, leading a small team of enthusiastic volunteers.
I am passionate about photography and historic churches and buildings. I also enjoy rock-climbing and kayaking.
