Greg Unwin187 Fleet Street ChambersHe has a very quick mind which means that he is normally a step ahead of the rest. He is a very effective and well-rounded advocate. Notwithstanding his no-nonsense style he is equally capable of sensitive cross-examination of a vulnerable witness. He is extremely hard working and when being led he is adept at anticipating those tasks that need to be done without having to be asked.
