Barrister (called 2007)

Alistair has a marine background, having studied Navigation at degree level and had an initial career in the Royal Navy. Following a serious injury, he re-trained as a barrister and undertook advisory and advocacy work in civil and criminal cases.

His ability to understand technical expert evidence is very impressive. His advice is measured and demonstrates that he is not only a good lawyer but understands the commercial implications of his advice.”
