If you have some trouble going against him in a pure melee fight, you may want to try a little cheese strategy.
From what I can tell:
In the beginning of the fight he really wants to cast the "Power Within" buff before going into a sort of second phase (healing orbs, etc.).
During the cast you can safely attack/backstab him for a large amount of damage, while also interrupting the cast.
As long as you keep him from casting the buff successfully, he will attempt the cast over and over again, allowing for many cheap opportunities to attack him.
Keep in mind to not get too greedy while spamming attacks, as he is still very, very, very good at parrying.
Also, don't be afraid to parry him yourself.
He uses a fairly slow sword which is not too difficult to parry (even with a medium shield).
