Commercial

Fenner has also been recommended in the directories for some years in both general Commercial Chancery (including in Chambers Global) and in specialist Civil Fraud and asset recovery. “If you want a barrister who you can rely on to impress the court and your client, he is your person.” “Constantly energetic and enthusiastic, he’s an extremely fast thinker, who throws himself into every argument and gives his best every time.”  (Chambers 2015 – Civil Fraud).  “Very good with clients and a great lateral thinker.” “Extremely pragmatic and to the point, he’s a pleasure to work with.” (Chambers 2015 – Commercial Chancery).

Earlier editions have said “He is hard-working and creative, realistic about his workload and he gets really excited about cases. He is a joy to work with.”  Described as “an impressive litigator, whose experience spans freezing orders, asset tracing, shareholder disputes and professional negligence claims”and a junior with first-class chancery knowledge who really makes a difference” he is an “alert performer in court”, who is “clever, sensible and approachable” and a “fount of knowledge when it comes to obscure legal points, and also has the ability to quickly identify the right issues.” Clients like working with him because he is “great at cross-examination and has a sound grasp of mathematical concepts“.
