Mike is ranked as one of the country's leading telecoms lawyers by the various legal guides, with Chambers & Partners (2010) describing his 'ability to grasp complex technical points quickly', and as well as commending his 'skill in navigating through the constraints of a tough regulatory environment.' The 2011 edition says that he is 'bright, has strong market knowledge and is an effective negotiator.' He was the only private practice lawyer on the legal working group of SubOptic (the main submarine cable industry body worldwide) which drafted a template fibreoptic system supply agreement.
