Aptum Legal helps clients resolve their disputes more effectively through project-based fixed pricing; systematically assessing legal and commercial risk and effectively managing a path to resolution. 

Director Nigel Evans has spent more than 11 years as a barrister, honing the skill of identifying, early, the issues that are critical to resolving a dispute. Nigel brings a desire to make meaningful change to the client experience and the way lawyers practise.
