Gabriel has a wide-ranging practice covering commercial, property and modern chancery litigation. His cases range from small matters in the county courts and other tribunals, to multi-million pound disputes in the High Court and in offshore jurisdictions. He has a growing portfolio of fraud-related cases and his work often has international aspects, with a particular emphasis on Africa and the Caribbean.
Much of Gabriel’s work cuts across traditionally defined disciplines. He combines intellectual rigour and attention to detail with a down-to-earth, common sense approach to litigation. As a result, Gabriel is often praised by clients, solicitors (including those acting for opposing parties) and judges for his ability to think outside the box.
Gabriel has been listed in The Legal 500 as a “leading junior” for his civil fraud practice, while The Lawyer magazine has referred to him as one of the “stars of the Junior Bar” for his real property work.
The Legal 500, 2015 note that “he has a strong track record in African and Caribbean related fraud cases.”
While a fierce advocate in the courtroom, Gabriel is ever-conscious of the practical and commercial needs of his clients. He is regularly instructed to assist in mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
In addition to advising and appearing as an advocate, Gabriel has been instructed as an expert on English Law and procedure in a dispute between members of an overseas royal family, and as Special Counsel by the indemnity insurer of a well-known City-based solicitors investigating suspected fraud by a number of the partners. Gabriel has also sat on the Disciplinary Tribunal of the Bar Standards Board. Gabriel is fluent in French (with a Master’s degree in Commercial Law from the University of Bordeaux). He has basic knowledge of Spanish. He has also worked for Simpson Grierson solicitors in New Zealand.
