Joel’s style and approach sets him apart. Professional clients say that he has an ability to develop, deploy and fine-tune novel solutions, often borne of a deep review of the prevailing legislation, case law or rules of procedure. It is this ability to develop legal arguments that enables Joel to offer solutions in seemingly difficult circumstances.

A keen advocate and trial strategist, Joel’s continually expanding employment practice includes representing leading national and regional firms, ‘household name’ clients in several sectors, and private individuals. Similarly, in the commercial arena, he is called upon by leading national and international businesses alike.

Joel prides himself on delivering an exceptional and prompt client service, and focuses on navigating to the best client outcomes from the outset of his instruction. At university, Joel was a keen moot competitor and had considerable success: placing second in City Law School’s BPTC moot despite being a GDL student, and competing in the highly respected Telders Public International Law Moot for UCL. Outside of his thriving practice, Joel’s personal interests are diverse. Joel cooks Peruvian, speaks Norwegian and frequents Scotland. He undertakes volunteer work and, when time allows, enjoys playing five-a-side football.

For Joel, delivering an excellent client service is essential. He prides himself on his prompt turnaround of instructions and a responsive style that ensures professional clients in particular are up-to-date and aware of where he stands with their case. Joel’s ability to digest and analyse, often vast, briefs and case bundles means that he is always across his brief and primed to present the best possible case for his clients. A natural presenter, gifted advocate and robust cross-examiner, Joel brings a rounded skill set to the table.

Ultimately, Joel also relies on hard work and significant investments of time and effort into each case. His outcome-focused mindset and approach means that he can navigate the issues quickly and liaise in a timely manner with his professional clients once papers arrive. Clients say that Joel’s self-deprecating and down-to-earth style makes collaborating on even the most challenging of cases easy and enjoyable.
