Chancery – Northern (Bar): Leading Barrister (Band 3)
"Very good at explaining things to clients. He has a fine grasp of what the client concerns are and he's got a good understanding of the solicitor's perspective, having been a solicitor himself. He's technically extremely gifted and is also a mediator so he brings that extra element to his advice."
