He was listed, along with team member Alex Collett, in the Legal 500 2022 directory, with comments including:
‘We’ve been dealing with a matter for nearly 4 years and have got to know the team pretty well.. We are always able to contact them, even after hours and weekends. As the relationship has grown it is clear that we’re getting more value then we’re paying for in terms of billing and if anything, we find that the team find innovative ways of helping us that keep our costs to a minimum.’
‘Emyr Kerfoot is an experienced commercial litigator who puts his client’s business needs first. He works hard to pursue his client’s case without issuing proceedings and fights the client’s corner once litigation is underway. He assembles a team of counsel and experts and ensures that the client gets a team working for them, not just individual professionals. Emyr is thriving in the relative freedom that Excello provides and clients like the directness and informality to be found outside more institutional firms. Alexandra Collett has an excellent reputation as a commercial litigator and gets to grips with disclosure, leaving the opposition with nowhere left to hide.’
