Recognised by The Legal 500 as a leader in the field over many years, his recent commendations highlight his “tactical nous makes him a first-choice weapon for anyone squaring up for a fight”, and observe, “he achieves an uncommon number of positive outcomes”.

They also say that “His subtlety, emotional intelligence and quick wit make him very effective” and that he is ”particularly suited to difficult fraud cases that require lateral thinking and a commercial approach”.
