Jon Oakley was a part of the Simkins team that won Gideon Benaim Spear’s Case of the Year for their representation of Sir Cliff Richard against the BBC. ‘He did that because he felt under a duty to try and make sure that no one in the future would suffer like he did,’ Oakley says of his client. For Oakley, who joined Simkins in 2013, practice involves an understanding of the personal aspect. ‘You’re working with people at what is often one of the most stressful times of their professional or personal life,’ he says. ‘Where clients feel valued is in you being able to apply the law to their personal situation and for them to feel that you can really fight their corner.’
