I have extensive experience working with Daniel Spendlove and Ritwick Ghosh, as well as the wider team. Both are cool, calm, and collected and are able to deal with litigation in a diplomatic but forceful way. Both have handled high intensity situations with aplomb and know how to resolve both legal issues but also how handle funders and insurers in pressurised situations.”
