David Marshall is the managing partner of Anthony Gold, as well as being one of the best-regarded lawyers practising today. Since David became managing partner in 1997, the firm has grown organically and through strategic takeovers of smaller practices.
David is ranked as a “leading individual” by his peers in the profession. His sharp mind benefits both the firm he manages and the clients he represents because he can bring the same forensic eye for detail and clear thinking to both.
Having run the business for many years David is particularly aware of the impact of costs on people’s lives. He has been a champion of alternative funding solutions, including ‘no win, no fee’ and conditional fees, aiming to help ordinary people to gain access to the law despite increasing withdrawal of state support.
David develops his own thinking and approach, and the profession’s best practice, by membership of legal committees and authorship of books. He is, for example, the chair of the Law Society’s Civil Justice Committee, the author and co-author of a number of titles including APIL Guide to Costs and Funding
and Compensation for Stress at Work
and the editor of APIL Personal Injury Law Practice and Precedents
. He is regularly quoted in the press and features frequently on radio and television for his legal expertise.
