“We instructed Simon to represent us in a complex and highly acrimonious dispute about easements. We could not have chosen a better barrister. Simon is not only a brilliant property lawyer, he is also a first-class tactician. Under his expert guidance, we obtained a negative declaration and had our costs paid on an indemnity basis, the best possible result. We would recommend Simon to other Direct Access clients without reservation.” (May 2019)
