  • He is definitely the advocate I should least like to be cross-examined by.

  • I not only recommend him to my clients but always use him for the firm’s own litigation.

  • Stuart is an advocate’s advocate – quick on his feet but always calm and penetrative in his argument.

  • I have instructed many commercial barristers over the years but he is the one I always come back to for the really challenging cases.

  • A tenacious advocate who always goes the extra mile for his client.

  • Stuart’s strategic approach to his cases impresses and reassures.

  • No case is too complicated for him.  He always gets to the heart of the issue.
