Greatest Professional Achievement
Graham believes that his best professional achievement is pursuing cases before the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal and recovering compensation in the case of over £250,000.00 on one occasion. However, beyond a single high profile reported case, he finds that achieving successful results for clients on a weekly basis is the most rewarding aspect to his work.
Greatest Personal Achievement

When not in work I enjoy running, reading, playing cricket, studying Japanese and watching various sports.
