William is a paralegal in our Dispute Resolution team, based in our Oxford office.

About William

William graduated from the University of Bristol with an undergraduate degree in Music (BA) before completing their qualifying, postgraduate degree in Law (MA). While studying for his MA, he worked in the Legal and Business Affairs Department of Aardman Animations, which drew on both disciplines to support copyright disputes within commissioned compositions as well as trademark clearances and licencing requests.

Prior to joining Royds Withy King in 2018, William worked at Kura Aviation, a start-up organisation, where he provided legal support on a variety of commercial matters including intellectual property (IP) disputes, equity finance and GDPR compliance.

Practice areas

William works across a range of dispute resolution areas including:

  • commercial and contractual disputes
  • consumer disputes
  • director, shareholder and partnership disputes
  • debt recovery
  • fraud
  • professional negligence
  • business protection.


Outside of work, William directs a 6-piece Jazz-Funk band and enjoys cycling.

I enjoy finding practical solutions to problems by understanding the context each issue originates from. Dispute Resolution combines legal challenges with a commercial and pragmatic outlook which supports a client’s situation and objectives. This makes working with the team incredibly varied while alleviating distress for the client. As a result, the work is extremely rewarding and motivating.

8 August 2018

The European Commission has fined Google 4.3 billion euros ($5bn) for using its dominant market position to sway the Android app market in their favour. Google has indicated they will challenge the decision. An appeal could make it months, if not years, before any fine is actually enforced – their previous 2.4 billion euro fine, from Sept 2017, has yet to be paid.
