"He is entirely in command of the technical aspects of his cases, and has a very keen eye for strategy and tactical opportunities. He is wonderfully personable and a real pleasure to work with." "He is an excellent advocate in court and very good at delivering technical advice concisely in a manner which fully factors in the commercial objectives of the clients." "He has a sharp intellect and provides clear and incisive advice."
Recent work: Instructed in Leeds and Anor v Lemos, an application which raised significant questions as to interaction of the powers of trustees in bankruptcy and a bankrupt’s fundamental right to assert privilege in legal advice.
