I have had the privilege of working with Darren on several matters over the years. His knowledge of the law and his ability to apply legal nuances to complex facts is impressive. Darren's advocacy skills -- both oral and written -- are clearly respected by his opponents as well as the judges he regularly appears before. Towards his colleagues in the bar, Darren is always generous with his time and freely gives advice to those who are not quite at his level of expertise. He is the consummate professional.
