Adam joined Tuckers Solicitors as the Practice Director in September 2011, having previously served four years as Practice Director of Duncan Lewis Solicitors, the country’s largest civil legal aid provider.

However, it is his mission to provide a framework for the delivery of legal aid that is commercially sustainable in the face of repeated cuts to the fees paid for legal aid services.
