I am a Consultant in the Personal Injury department, with particular experience of group litigation on behalf of claimants including cases involving child abuse, defective products and medical negligence.
I have been involved in some of the most important and high profile group action cases, including:
- Haemophilia litigation on behalf of HIV and hepatitis victims
- Cadbury’s salmonella cases
- Camelford water pollution cases
I was also involved in claims arising from the ‘Marchioness’ disaster, including the judicial review proceedings resulting in the resumption of the inquest and representation of victims and families at the Marchioness public enquiry and non-statutory enquiry.
