    "Jamie and I worked together negotiating a national sport contract. He had great attention to detail; displayed speed with which he picked up the issues; had a very effective and measured negotiating style; and was a pleasure to work with."

    Rod Findlay, Sports lawyer 

    "At the start of lockdown Jamie offered the opportunity to be mentored by him and I was lucky enough to be accepted. It has been invaluable, candid, personalised feedback, advice and support that has already been instrumental in improving my approach a career at the bar. I now know key the areas I need to focus on to build relevant experience and improve my advocacy. Jamie continues to check in and offer support and it has meant a lot to be mentored by someone offering their experience and expertise in their personal time to give us the best footing to pursue our careers. Thank you Jamie."
