Solicitor / Sean McHale

I qualified as a solicitor in 2015 at Levi Solicitors LLP. At the firm I predominantly dealt with commercial disputes (pertaining to shareholder disputes, contractual disputes and partnership agreements), construction disputes (issues of negligence, contractual and payment disputes) and professional negligence (claims against solicitors, architects and construction companies).

In 2016 I worked at Hawkswell Kilvington, a boutique construction law and dealt with adjudication disputes, payment disputes and issues of construction negligence.

I returned to Levi Solicitors LLP and advised clients in matters of commercial litigation and disputes. However, alongside this I set-up an employment law practice at the firm and regularly represented clients in relation to employment tribunal proceedings (both claimant and respondent). During this period, I also represented clients in the High Court and Court of Appeal in relation to complex and high-value commercial and construction disputes.

I aim to provide excellent legal advice to clients, whilst also being frank and clear in relation to clients commercial considerations.
