Commercial

Fenner has 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.

“Confident, tactically astute and someone who takes a no-nonsense approach to client advice.” “Excellent to deal with, very responsive and fiercely intelligent.” (Chambers & Partners – Civil Fraud 2018/2019).

“Positively effervescent with enthusiasm and a man who has good ideas. You definitely want to have him on your side because he will really drive a case forward.” “He is quick and a good judge of how the court will respond.” “Has a thorough grounding in the law, and just tenaciously goes for it in court.” “He doesn’t try to talk very cleverly about how bright he is, but instead just gives straightforward advice. His advocacy style is the same; he doesn’t dress things up.” (Chambers & Partners: Commercial Chancery 2018/2019).

Earlier editions have described him 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”.
