  • Daniel Lightman is excellent: he has a superb eye for detail and is adept at spotting and exploiting the weaknesses in his opponent’s case; he can master large bundles of documents and analyse the information in them to marshal the key facts in support of a clear and powerful argument; he keeps focused on the client’s interests; and has a way of empathising with them in a way that is very much valued. He is also a good team player”
