Ian Daniels

Joint Chief Executive (COFA)

About Ian Daniels

I am one of Invicta Law’s Chief Executives, working closely with James Pigott. Prior to joining Invicta Law I spent a number of years as Head of Finance and Financial Controller in a range of private sector SMEs and FTSE listed businesses.

I have a background in financial planning, commercial finance, treasury management, auditing and consulting gained in the Financial Services, PFI, Retail, Manufacturing and Charity sectors.

I am a Fellow Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, qualifying in 2006.

I started my career as an auditor with Larkings Chartered Accountants. Upon qualifying I moved to the Charities Aid Foundation working in financial planning and treasury management. I worked for HCP, a PFI company as Finance Manager and then moved to Smiths Group Plc as Divisional Financial Controller.

Following a period of consultancy, during which time I worked on a range of corporate finance and change management projects, I became Head of Finance at Saga Plc heading up the group team overseeing the insurance and travel divisions.

Ian is applying his extensive private sector experience to lead and guide Invicta Law during the next stage of its development

Client testimonials

She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
