In 5 years in Silk, he has successfully defended in a number of Murder cases including the 2011 New Year's Eve Hatton Garden Murder at the CCC and a Street Murder outside a Billericay Night Club as well as Minhaj Musa charged with 10 others in a street execution in Preston.

In 2016, He successfully defended Clayton Williams, who was charged with the Murder of the Wirral Police Officer, PC David Philips, a case that attracted national press and TV coverage. The trial was presided over by Mr Justice William Davis, who said that he conducted the case "with skill and expertise" and had "done everything he possibly could" to present his client's case. In the televised Court of Appeal case in March 2017, the President of the QBD, Sir Brian Leveson, said the following:

"Mr Davis I would not want the appellant to misunderstand the position. You took every point that could be taken. I commented maybe on a couple that could not be, but every point that could be taken was advanced. He can have no complaint at the skilful way in which he has been represented."

He has appeared as an advocate in front of the British Boxing Board of Control on licensing matters, the Football League tribunal on transfer irregularities and other regulatory bodies and regularly advises Professional Athletes including current PGA European Tour Golfers and Sports Management companies. He was a Registered Lawyer with the Football Association. In February 2015, he appeared in an FA Rule K Arbitration representing an FA Licensed Agent.
