"...always on top of the papers, however complex, and is a great tactician in finance cases." Brazil is also applauded for his strength in cases with international elements, and for his "approachable style and great client care." His impressive practice and growing reputation mean he is "well liked by judges, even in places as far flung as the North Eastern circuit, which is not his usual stamping ground."
