As an experienced knowledgeable barrister, Robin provided excellent & efficient service, and helped to achieve the desired result. He went beyond the call of duty by offering valuable personal advice from an alternative viewpoint. Robin is indeed "a barrister with a difference". Highly recommended.

Robin was recommended by a colleague to deal with what was likely to be a difficult mediation, and one which was thought to have little prospect of success. It was to begin life as a workplace mediation and if that was not successful move to a civil mediation. Robin worked tirelessly throughout the day and night with both parties, helping them to resolve and move through entrenched views and positions, to reach an agreement that avoided what would have been lengthy, costly and unproductive litigation. Having reached agreement Robin stayed with the parties whilst the lawyers drafted and negotiated the precise terms. His assistance throughout this phase was invaluable and the agreement was finally documented and signed off shortly after midnight.

Robin was extremely professional and maintained his independent input throughout the day. He also focussed in on the problems and managed both sides aspirations and came up with a very simple way to bring the deal to a conclusion. I was very pleased to have him involved in this dispute and I think he certainly helped us to agree a settlement in one day that could have run for much longer.

Thank you for all your assistance on this matter. Really pleased with the outcome of both the application hearing and the Trial, excellent work! The lay client also had the following feedback: ‘I would highly recommend Mr. Somerville as your representative. He proved to be very professional with attention to detail and I would not make it without his help and his faith in me.’

Robin helped bridge the gap in expectations between myself and my employer and was commercial and fair throughout. Would highly recommmend him to others in a similar situation.
Tara Lyons - Managing Director - View LinkedIn Indiefield
Robin’s work is exceptional. He has a keen eye for detail and a passion for bringing matters to a rapid close. I will never use another lawyer again. Robin’s knowledge both in terms of points of law and his ability to quote case law is remarkable. Truly one of a kind. He is a wonderful example of calm preparedness during what was a bitter business dispute for us. I so appreciated his calming presence, and his polite and respectful attitude. Honest, trustworthy and very straight forward, Robin will tell you exactly where you stand. He never loses sight of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for his client. Underpinning all of this is his strong business nous and an appreciation of the real-life commercial context.

"Thank you for all your kind assistance in this matter which we very much appreciate especially as this case was foisted upon you and us by the client on the eleventh hour."

"I can’t thank you enough. Your arguments in the skeleton have made us win the case, so many thanks Robin. This is a massive relief for me. I’m over the moon."
Andrew Carmichael Creative Process (A company)
I had been involved in a commercial dispute for several years and had consulted with many legal professionals at considerable cost. Within days of first talking to Robin, with great skill and precision, he started taking me through a mediation process and the whole matter was resolved within the month for a fraction of the legal fees I was anticipating having to spend. He is the first legal professional I have worked with who puts wanting to find a solution to the clients problem before anything else, I wish I had met him four years ago. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Mark Turner Tinsdills Solicitors
I briefed Robin on a small claims hearing in a matter where the other side was a difficult litigant in person with an axe to grind. He was clearly on top of the substantial amount of documentation in the bundle, and had obviously grasped the key facts and issues. Although the judge’s decision was only a partial victory (through no fault of Robin’s), the client was very happy with Robin’s preparation and advocacy, which he described as being “extremely impressive”. I would have no hesitation in briefing Robin again.
Stephen Ball Zest Legal
