News & Judgments
8 March 2019

4 New Square’s Daniel Saoul has been selected by The Lawyer as one of this year’s outstanding barristers taking silk, being appointed Queen’s Counsel after only ten years 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.”
