“A quite exceptional Solicitor who is both very proactive and commercially aware. Scott's ability to rapidly assess complex issues in a case and provide high quality & innovative advice is hugely impressive, as is his tactical approach to litigation. Client care is also a priority for Scott, with excellent communication at all times and a very sensible approach to billing. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
