Gary qualified as a solicitor in 1982 and spent 20 years with two high street practices, specialising in civil litigation and personal injury work. At both firms he took on responsibility for practice development which was to see a fourfold increase in their growth.
He also took on a part-time training role, working for a number of course providers and, with the advent of the Woolf reforms, was soon presenting courses virtually full time.
From 2001 to 2004 he was Head of Practice Development at the Law Society.
Gary is now a practicing solicitor again, which he combines with being a costs consultant and a freelance trainer.
Gary is also an assistant lecturer at the Open University and an occasional contributor to legal discussions on national radio.
