Sean is noted in the Legal 500 for his ‘pragmatism, persistence and availability.’

“I consider myself fortunate to have worked closely with Sean over a number of years during which he has advised me in relation to North Sea oil and gas asset management and A&D activity. Aside from his undoubted legal knowledge, Sean has always impressed me with his analytical skills and his ability to understand and communicate clearly the most complex of issues. He has a keen commercial eye and is highly creative in his approach to problem solving. Added to this, Sean’s can-do attitude and easy-going nature make working with him an absolute pleasure.”

“Sean is always looking for solutions and possibilities; he adds value and brings a very constructive approach and attitude to each project”

“I worked with Sean in the preparation of a joint operating agreement between Australian oil & gas companies in respect of a Taranaki oil and gas production unit. The company we were representing was impressed that, despite being on a family holiday in Europe and a tight timeframe, Sean and his team prepared a document that was accepted with minimal comment by the JV companies.”

“I worked a significant UKCS asset sale/purchase deal a few years ago as Purchaser with Sean acting for the Seller. His ability to identify and promptly address critical issues saved a great deal of time and was a major contribution in getting the transaction successfully completed. A very effective and pragmatic lawyer (and good fun with it)”

“There are two types of lawyers in this world – deal makers and deal breakers – Sean, you are a deal maker”

“Sean, I always appreciated your principled approach and willingness to work hard and offer solutions.”
