"Fantastic to work with. He absorbs large amounts of detail very quickly, and is always available at short notice, responsive, calm, measured and sensible. He is also excellent with clients, who listen and respect what he says, and he is able to persuade the more gung-ho clients of the merits of more measured approaches without appearing weak - a particular talent!"

"Incredibly accessible, very user-friendly and smart; he brought real added value to the case." "Very hard-working, diligent, bright, and offers great attention to detail."
