Practice Overview

Ian has a varied and diverse practice in the UK and abroad. The focus is on seeking to achieve the client’s required result without going to court however, if that is not possible Ian’s particular strength is as an advocate with extensive trial experience.

He has been involved in many large-scale and high-profile professional liability cases involving claims against solicitors, accountants, stockbrokers, civil engineers and management consultants. In addition, he is regularly engaged in commercial disputes involving not only the due performance of obligations but also those where fraud is a component.

As has been the case for many years the Chambers & Partners guide gives a useful indication of the nature of his work. For 2020 it says:

“An absolute genius. He loves court work and is brilliant at it, tactics are always spot-on. Just a really, really good cross-examiner.”

“He is very experienced and is quick at identifying the key points in a case.”

“A terrific courtroom presence and the man to instruct if you want a ‘big beast’ of an advocate.”

“An excellent advocate, very capable. A great courtroom lawyer.”

“An excellent cross-examiner and an absolutely fearless advocate who can strike fear into the other side.”

“He’s always incredibly well prepared.”

“Always incredibly well prepared and good at keeping the confidence of the court, he has an answer to every question they ask of him.”

“Ian’s a real student of advocacy and a tactical thinker.”

The Legal 500 2019 adds:

“He is clever, fearless and has a highly strategic mind.”
