The Cream of The Lawyers’ Crop: Daniel Saoul’s swift rise to silk
See article here: ‘Silks appointments 2019: Introducing the new stars at the bar‘
The Lawyer’s feature on Dan reads as follows:
“Saoul’s experience as a solicitor at HSF has helped accelerate his Bar practice, allowing him to better understand the challenges solicitors face and how a barrister can add value both inside and outside a courtroom.
Saoul’s cases are primarily commercial disputes. Even as a junior, he demonstrated strong trial advocacy skills and was often instructed by solicitors as the sole advocate in difficult, high-value litigation.
His involvement in the recent Kazakhstan Kagazy High Court litigation, in which he helped the Central Asia claimant win a four-year fraud case, is one of the highlights.
His commercial litigation practice is supplemented with expertise in sports law. He represents high-profile global sports stars, such as former Great Britain prop Ryan Bailey, in challenging proceedings and situations. It is a natural progression thanks to Saoul’s past in international rowing.
Saoul looks forward to developing further his niche in offshore litigation. He was called to the BVI Bar in 2009.”
