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 2019 it says:

“An impressive advocate who boasts an extensive track record of dealing with large-scale professional liability cases.”

“A powerful advocate with a good deal of experience in the commercial chancery world. His practice has a particularly prominent civil fraud strand. He also has extensive experience of dealing with high-profile professional negligence cases against solicitors, accountants and stockbrokers.”

“A most persuasive advocate who is extremely clever and extremely likeable as an opponent.” “He is really smooth and has a really conversational style with the judge.”

“A fine advocate who produces brilliant trial arguments.”

“An excellent silk who is quick to grasp the points in a case. He’s very good with clients and peerless in court.” “Ian is a first-class trial lawyer with excellent judgement.”

The Legal 500 2019 adds:

“Highly experienced in complex commercial claims.”

“His attention to detail and ability to identify alternative and sustainable arguments combined with pragmatic advice is invaluable.”
