About Nick Clarke
Nick heads up the Dispute Resolution and Insolvency Team, having been with Aarons for over 20 years. In May 2019 he became the firm’s Senior Partner and in that capacity, sits on the firm’s management board. In addition to his management responsibilities Nick still undertakes client work on substantial matters where his experience adds value. This includes drafting commercial agreements, particularly for clients in the Logistics sector, handling high value or complex commercial disputes, again with particular focus on the logistics sector and contentious insolvency work in the context of asset recovery claims including claims against directors.
Through the firm’s close connection to the UK Warehousing Association, Nick has considerable experience of resolving disputes involving liens and situations where customers of warehouse keepers have become insolvent. In addition, he has handled numerous professional negligence claims including against accountants, solicitors, architects and financial advisers.
Nick’s approach to disputes is to first understand his client’s objectives and plan a strategy to achieve them. He is a firm believer that dispute resolution is not just about Court procedures, but more about finding cost effective solutions to the problems clients face.
Nick has lived most of his life in Chester, attending Christleton High School before studying jurisprudence (law) at Wadham College, Oxford. He is passionate about Chester and its development, and volunteers with the Chester Civic Trust. In his spare time he’s a season ticket holder at Manchester United.
