Tim Berg


Head of Dispute Resolution and Insolvency

T: 0191 211 1502

Tim studied for a Chemistry degree before moving to Dundee to study English and Scottish law. He trained at a practice in Leeds whose main client was Barclays Bank, then moved to a Yorkshire regional practice working in the commercial litigation and insolvency team moving from assistant solicitor, associate then partner. Tim advises on two main areas which overlap.

Firstly, in Dispute Resolution advising on heavyweight cases and managing cases through to a conclusion by negotiation, mediation or action through the County or High Courts. Secondly, offering Insolvency advice from the standpoint of creditor, debtor and Insolvency practitioner.

"Interesting investigations which require joining a complex pattern of dots to make a complete picture of what has been going on. It gets really interesting finding the right strategy to give the client the best solution to the problem - It's easy to get absorbed."

"I live with my family and 2 horses on a hillside. I love to ski and am a BASI Level 1 qualified instructor. I spend a lot of time outdoors. I am a foodie and like to cook and love going to the cinema when baby sitters allow. I also drive an old Land Rover called Ethylred (recently reconstruced out of necessity!), have a love for joinery and collect locks and keys.
