He appears in County Courts in his areas of interest, on which he also advises. He relishes the nitty gritty of housing and property law issues, including issues relating to minors (see, for example, Croydon LBC v Tando),  constructive trusts and concurrent tenancies; and he has expertise in eligibility issues, particularly in EU law, human rights and public law, and equality issues.  As a part-time secondee to the Welsh Government, he has expertise in housing issues in Wales.
