Stuart has managed some of the department's most complex and novel commercial cases, in particular those with a financial markets aspect.
We instructed Stuart in a high-value three-party dispute, where he quickly showed his resourcefulness and determination in identifying and instructing a suitable expert witness after all other attempts had drawn a blank. Stuart’s tactical commercial thinking and cool-headed approach in some difficult meetings were invaluable, and he was able to predict accurately the approach the judge would take and the eventual outcome. His availability, responsiveness and good humour made him very easy to work with, and he has an excellent team.
