Professonal negligence arising out of property, finance and business transactions
Chambers & Partners (2014) recommends David for real estate litigation: “An eminent property litigation silk with a wealth of experience, who is highly sought after by solicitors for his work on the intersection between property and professional negligence disputes. Unbelievably brilliant. He is the advocate for all seasons, and fantastically easy to deal with. He's incredibly direct in terms of identifying the problem, fantastic on his feet and a huge amount of fun." Chambers & Partners (2014) also recommends him for professional negligence as "A master tactician ... fantastic on complex areas of law and extremely collaborative in his approach. The lawyer's lawyer." He is also recommended in the Legal 500 for property litigation and for professional negligence.
