Daniel specialises in all aspects of employment law. He has for many years been recognised as a leading junior by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, in which he has been described as a "clever all rounder" who is "very good on his feet" and “"a bit of a bruiser".
Daniel appears regularly in the High Court in employee competition litigation (particularly involving injunctive relief); in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal (often in cases in which he did not appear at first instance); and in complex or high value employment tribunal litigation. He is increasingly regularly instructed to appear in cases against silks.
