He is recognised in the directories in respect of all his practice areas. He is recommended in Chambers & Partners as a leading KC for Commercial Dispute Resolution, Employment and Professional Discipline, and in Legal 500 for Offshore, Employment and Professional Disciplinary and Regulatory Law.

He has appeared in various first instance courts (including but not limited to the BVI Commercial Court) and before the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal.
