Polly Glynn, DPG’s managing partner said: “We will miss Gareth enormously – he is one of the best litigators around and has contributed greatly to our success as a firm and most importantly made a real difference to so many of his clients where his exceptional litigation skills and depth of knowledge has achieved incredible results”.
