David (pictured, second left) trained and qualified with Capital Law in 2004 prior to joining Eversheds in 2008. He has extensive financial service sector expertise and has advised high street banks, niche lenders and financial networks. 

He also advises on property-related disputes, asset tracing, debt recoveries, contractual and security-related disputes as well as negligence and fraud-related claims.

Ceri (pictured, right) was with Eversheds for 12 years having qualified with Rickerbys LLP in Cheltenham in 2002. She specialises in insurance, financial services and professional negligence and was responsible for a team of solicitors who recovered damages in excess of £4,000,000 on behalf of three major financial institutions. She also advises on employment issues such as data protection, unfair dismissal, breach of contract and redundancy.

Michael Burne (pictured, left), chief executive of Carbon Law Partners, said: ‘Both Ceri and David have proven track records in general commercial litigation; offering a practical, realistic approach to dispute resolution. Their approach to client delivery provides an excellent fit with our business model. We are delighted to welcome them to the business.’
