He is rated as a Leader in his Field in both Legal 500 and Chambers' Directory where not only has he been described as being "disarmingly talented" but has also won approval as "a barrister who does not make a song and dance about things but who just gets them done". Most recently (2013) Chambers commented that "his advocacy contains razor-sharp insight camouflaged by gossamer-soft presentation".
