    Answered by Justin Warshaw KC of 1 Hare Court

    Justin is "a strategic mastermind, extremely articulate, and a force to be reckoned with." "His real strength is his totally fearless approach to hard-litigated cases."

    Answered by Michael Horton KC of Coram Chambers

    Answered by James Ewins KC of QEB

    James is “an ace strategist cutting through a brief to identify the magic number for settlement in lightning-quick time.” He sits as a Deputy High Court Judge.

  7. Company Income and Valuations

    How do you help clients facing a sudden reduction in company income, expenses or valuation, and what do you do if you think the reductions are manipulations?

    Answered by Jason Green of Harcourt Chambers

    Jason is "a class act whose advocacy is pitched perfectly." "He is utterly charming with clients who love him and impressive in the way he handles difficult opponents."

  8. Children’s Needs vs. Standard Splits
