“He is rigorous in his attention to detail and has very good judgement." "He is a very intelligent barrister, a powerful and subtle analytical thinker and a joy to work with."

Jason is a litigator whose attention to detail, strong legal, commercial and strategic advice as well as extensive trial and appellate advocacy experience have won him many followers in several fields of practice over the years.

Jason undertakes a wide range of civil common law and commercial work including contractual, insurance and reinsurance, professional negligence and property damage disputes. He is often involved in cases which draw on his expertise in different fields. He also advises and acts on urgent interim applications for injunctions and applications relating areas within conflicts of law (e.g. jurisdiction and choice of law) and has experience of litigation in the ECJ). He also has extensive past personal injury experience.

Jason’s work is typically in what are now the Business and Property Courts of England and Wales (in particular the Commercial Court, the London and other regional Circuit Commercial Courts as well as the TCC and the Business List (ChD)) as well as in the Court of Appeal.

He also appears in arbitrations and has acted under ICC and LCIA rules as well as in ad-hoc arbitrations.  From time to time he has been appointed to act as an arbitrator in commercial disputes.
