Noel is "highly experienced at guiding clients through the vicissitudes of fraud litigation. Sources declare that he is "a decisive leader" who "has phenomenal judgement" and an "uncanny ability to maximise the potential in people. (Chambers UK 2017).

Sources also say he is "a noted presence in the civil fraud market, undertaking a significant amount of cross-border work". Others regard him as a "highly able and capable litigator" and "a worthy opponent" (Chambers UK 2013).

He is "something of a godfather at the firm and has seen all sorts of disputes. He is someone you want in your corner." (Legal 500 UK 2021, Commercial Litigation: Premium) .

"We know we can rely on him if we have a fraud case in the UK or across multiple jurisdictions, and he is very strong on offshore work. He has very in-depth and insightful knowledge of fraud work." (Chambers 2018).

His breadth of experience enables him to be "tremendously flexible and [to] adopt the best course of action for a specific case"" (Chambers UK 2010)

Noel is qualified in England and Wales, Hong Kong and Victoria (Australia).
