"I have worked with Nigel on some of the most legally challenging projects of my career and I have felt utterly confident in his counsel, which is always underpinned by wisdom, intelligence and rigour. He is also an absolute pleasure to work with.”
“Having Nigel advise Channel 4 News‘s Indy Fund on investigations into extremely high-proﬁle corporations and individuals was indispensable. His knowledge. expertise and forensic eye for detail gave us the conﬁdence to pursue journalism to its limits."
“More than just a safe pair of hands, Nigel has that extra creative edge and understanding of production that makes him a truly valuable asset.”
"Nigel has an outstanding understanding of working with diverse editorial teams. I trust his judgment completely."
“Imaginative, creative, utterly reliable, legally rigorous, and terriﬁc fun. If there‘s a better media lawyer, I haven‘t yet met him or her."
“Nigel is calm, cool under pressure and always offers the most incisive and considered advice ...the man you need by your side when the going gets tough."
“With his considerable knowledge and experience, Nigel really brings something extra when dealing with thorny legal and compliance problems."
"Nigel is one of the finest media lawyers around. Few can match his expertise in pre-publication legal advice. Nigel’s commitment and diligence are beyond question. His attention to detail and excellent drafting skills ensure he is a ‘safe pair of hands’ when dealing with high-profile programmes and complaints. His client care skills are also outstanding. He is always attentive and a pleasure to deal with."
“The important thing when working with a media barrister in production is trust. If you know that the lawyer is essentially trying to help you get your ideas on the screen, you feel confident enough to be honest – to actively draw his or her attention to the weaknesses and potential elephant traps in your research. If you sense that the lawyer is being corporately nervous or enjoying the power they have over the production process a little too much, you become defensive. Nigel is no pushover, far from it. But I’ve discovered over the years that he is essentially trying to help us get our programmes made – to say what we want to say without crossing the often blurred lines by which our industry is governed. That makes him a fantastically powerful ally in what is often a very tough fight to put uncomfortable ideas before a wider world."
