A part of the Simkins team that represented Sir Cliff Richard in his landmark case against the BBC, Jon Oakley enjoys the personal side of dealing with clients. ‘You’re working with people at what is often one of the most stressful times of their professional or personal life,’ says Oakley, who joined Simkins in 2013. ‘Where clients feel valued is in you being able to apply the law to their personal situation and for them to feel that you can really fight their corner.’The reverberations from the Sir Cliff Richard case continue. ‘He did that because he felt a duty to try to make sure that no one in the future would suffer like he did,’ Oakley says of his former client.
