With my varied background, I believe I am one of the few successful generalist in the big lawfirms. I have been admitted to the Supreme Court for almost 30 years. Even if I have dealt with a variety of cases, my main interests are in, the still varied, fields of Freedom of Expression, Oil and Gas, Fisheries and Contract Disputes. The recipe for a successful Court Case is mainly structure, provided by the law. And then finding the facts, which you have to check for yourself.
