Joseph is a Legal 500 recommended Q.C and Silk. He is an acknowledged leader of both individuals and teams, described as having “exemplary technical and analytical skills” and an “excellent choice of barrister for sensitive complex commercial litigation
“his skills in presenting the case were sublime…..assertive, succinct and shrewd”
With a talent for spotting the important issues and not wasting time, the description of Joseph “excellent choice for sensitive commercial litigation” is apt. Joseph looks to solve problems not create them.
In the first trial, of many to follow, of British Army soldiers prosecuted for abuse of Iraqi civilians, the BBC News reported that Joseph “tore, ferociously, into the first commanding officer to give evidence as a prosecution witness”; this description has earned him the moniker “iron fist in a velvet glove”; he fearlessly represents the accused person in all disciplinary and regulatory litigation.
Forensic cross examination and “exemplary technical and analytical skills” learnt from 35 years of practise, and extensive cross examination skills developed from his junior years, Joseph’s approach involves listening with care to a client first and foremost, then careful analysis and best quality case presentation.
Litigation is not always the sensible or desirable way to solve a dispute. Cost benefit analysis and best interests of the client is front and centre of Joseph’s commercial mind set; what is best for the client is at the heart of what Joseph is about and will drive the planning and execution of any of Joseph’s cases.
Patents, copyright and trademarks have provided Joseph with real challenges in the past, all mostly to protect the interests of the vulnerable inventor or designer
