Dominic Carman is one of the best legal journalists around. He has an extensive understanding of the international commercial legal market – both law firms and the Bar – and a strong contact base across some of the largest law firms in the world. His interviewing skills mean he is able to extract insightful quotes that make his writing both informative and engaging. His writing is always clear and concise but he is also able to look beyond the facts to add the colour and human interest aspects.

Dominic is supremely courteous, and speaks in beautifully modulated sentences.

- Susan Bright, Regional Managing Partner UK & Africa, Hogan Lovells

Dominic, Thanks for your excellent article on this complex and very hot topic!

- Tom Burroughs, Group Editor ClearView Financial Media

‘Dominic presented a very well researched, amusing and hard-hitting analysis of the way the “offshore” world and private wealth management is perceived and reported on in the UK. The depth, honesty and insight of his presentation were educational and enjoyable. This, coupled with his overall marshalling and summarising of the Legal Week Offshore Investment Forum, made it a pleasure to both be a presenter and participant.’ – re: Offshore Investment Forum: Funds in Flux, London 2016 – Dominic chaired the event.

Dominic Carman has written probably the best opinion or article I’ve read about the importance of an independent judiciary.

- Eamon Holley – Legal Director, DLA Piper

It’s honest biography…and it is to Dominic’s credit that he is prepared to lay bare the price his father paid for his years in the limelight.

- John Crace – Guardian

Superbly written by Dominic. Valid points well made.

- Ian Ross – Financial Crime Risk Specialist, Intersol Global

Great speaking to you Dominic! You certainly are the most well-informed journalist I’ve ever spoken to.

- David Bitton, Chief Executive Officer, PracticePanther Miami

Dominic is talented, diligent and versatile. He has generated significant amounts of original content for high-profile internal projects. Dominic has proved his ability to grasp quickly the issues affecting sectors as diverse as private equity and low-carbon power, and countries including Brazil and Turkey. He has delivered work to a very high standard and to tight deadlines, and has proved an excellent interviewer.

- Jon Bowd, Managing Editor, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

A very big thank you for the delivery of an excellent speech, Dominic. It is very rare for people to deliver such perfection straight off the bat!

- Lucy Murphy, Head of Business Development, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

Dominic has an excellent contact base and knowledge of commercial law firms and the Bar.

- Alex Novarese, Editor in chief, Legal Business

Dominic Carman’s overview of what has happened in education over the past five decades is lucid and useful.

- Ralph Townsend, Headmaster of Winchester College

I have read Dominic Carman’s Heads Up with real pleasure. It provides a generous and thought-provoking insight into the different approaches and shared values of headmasters today, as well as some fascinating history.

- Dr Gary Savage, Headmaster, Alleyn’s School

Dominic Carman’s Heads Up is the best account of school leadership I’ve ever come across. I was fascinated by this well-rounded, punchy and realistic account of what our lives are like, doing the best job in the world. This is an inspirational and frank account of independent headship: anyone aspiring to be a head should read it, all current heads should read it, and all our colleagues should too.

- Felicity Lusk, Head of Abingdon School

This is a fascinating and unique book, often punchy, at times outrageous, and always difficult to put down. Somehow, Dominic Carman has spirited out of a set of leading heads views and opinions which they probably would never acknowledge in public, as well as the occasional traditional view. The approaches are in many cases entirely contradictory, yet the effects on schools are clearly very comparable. No head – or governor – should be without this book; and for many parents it will be an eye-opening and extraordinary read.

- Tim Hands, Master of Magdalen College School, Oxford; HMC Chairman 2013-14

Indisputably, Dominic’s searing, often affectionate and probably self-destructive memoir challenges the integrity of those remaining silent.

- Tom Bower, Daily Mail

Dominic Carman’s excellent use of original legal papers provides valuable insight

- Robert Verkaik, Independent

A fascinating biography

- Anthony Howard, Sunday Times

Dominic Carman has written a brilliant biography. I chose it as one of my favourite books.

- Michael Crick, Political Correspondent for Channel 4 News, formerly BBC2 Newsnight

It is always worth dipping into the biographies of great advocates. The best examples are Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer by Michael Mansfield, QC and No Ordinary Man: A Life of George Carman by Dominic Carman

- Thomas Dyke, The Times

Dominic Carman’s life of his father is cool and clear-eyed. Dominic has served him well. This is a painfully honest and compelling biography of, indeed, no ordinary man.

- Lynn Barber, Daily Telegraph
