He is widely acknowledged as a leading lawyer in high-value disputes arising from largescale projects, particularly in the energy and infrastructure sectors.
Mr Dymond is consistently recognised by the legal directories as a leader in his field. He is included in The Legal 500’s inaugural International Arbitration Powerlist and recommended in The Legal 500 UK (2020) for international arbitration and construction disputes. Described as ‘a lawyer’s lawyer’, ‘an exceptional legal mind’ and ‘thoughtful and able to reduce complex issues to their key components’, the guide also hails him as ‘one of the few lawyers who genuinely understands construction and engineering delay matters’ and a ‘prolific, top-class strategic thinker’. Chambers UK (2020) also recommends Mr Dymond for his construction disputes work, with commentators describing him as an ‘exceptionally capable’ and ‘fantastic lawyer who puts his heart and soul into every case’. Clients find him ‘very sound and a safe pair of hands’. He is named by Who’s Who Legal as a Thought Leader in construction, and by Expert Guides as one of the UK’s leading construction law practitioners.
