Please note: if you wish to engage David on a case, you should do so as soon as the dispute arises, and certainly well before any hearing is listed, so that be can advise you about how best to prepare the case. Lead time should typically be a few weeks before a short hearing, and some months before a trial. Late bookings for hearing may be declined if there is not sufficient time for the case to be properly prepared.
