"He is very emotionally astute and charming - a genuinely funny guy who can inject humour to diffuse tense situations, but where needed, can hold a strong negotiation position, and stand over it convincingly, when needed"

"Dominic is clearly very experienced. He is also very intelligent and articulate. He is personable but can easily hold his own if others are being difficult. Very client focussed. An excellent lawyer"

"Dominic makes the seemingly boring task of drafting as painless as possible. He always has a clear understanding as to what points should be negotiated on in order to achieve a balanced result for all sides. He is clear in his explanations as to why a contract is structured in a particular way, which makes it easier for us to get on the same page quickly"
