What clients say about Michael Young

His review in Legal 500 2023 states ‘Michael Young is exceptional. He takes time to understand the client’s issues and is then pragmatic in both suggesting and then steering a way forward. He is collaborative by nature but is willing to be hard-nosed when required to secure the best client outcome. He is efficient and effective in getting the most out of counsel’.
