1988 - Present: Managing Director - Total Legal Limited
I am a Costs Lawyer and Consultant and Managing Director of Total Legal Limited, trading as Gibbins Costs Lawyers. I became a Salaried Partner in Gibbins in 1995 and Equity Partner in 2000. Together with a business partner, we formed Total Legal Limited which now 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 and individuals in a non-business and voluntary setting. Part of our outreach includes the operation of an Education Centre through the Education charity TLG for young people who have either been excluded or are at risk of being excluded from school and part of my role is to work closely with the centre manager. 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 team of enthusiastic volunteers and seeing the lives of young people transformed as a result. At that time, I was a qualified indoor climbing instructor and remain passionate about rock climbing, kayaking as well as photography and historic churches and buildings.
