Philip Hooley’s willingness to go beyond technical legal advice to provide an opinion on a commercial and realistic approach won him praise from Guy Jones of Fujitsu.
He said: “What I really appreciate from Philip above and beyond his legal expertise (which I rate as excellent) is his ability to provide pragmatic and timely advice in difficult situations. Most other lawyers I have dealt with previously tended not to want to offer an opinion as regards the “best” way forward, whereas Philip is always prepared to do this. It is this particular quality which means that I will always turn to Philip first in any future situations.”
