It’s six months since my last column for the Independent Group and I would like to thank everyone who wrote and called to wish me well and to say how much they had enjoyed my weekly pieces over many years in the group’s morning titles. Your encouragement and support was very gratefully received.

Much has happened since then. I now write for the Financial Mail – a weekly column that appears every Thursday in print and online on Fridays here:

In addition I write a fortnightly column for Legalbriefs, a daily online legal newspaper, as well as a monthly piece called Platteland Perspectives for the legal journal Without Prejudice.

All of these will also now be published on this site, along with occasional contributions made in other media.

Please contact me on for feedback on anything you read here, or comment directly below an article that catches your attention.
