Nick has been involved in many complex multi-day trials involving discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing, unfair dismissal and various claims relating to loss of earnings. He has gained a reputation for giving clear, unvarnished, practical advice as well as being approachable and easy to work with. He has a particular specialism in defending large employers and in particular retailers; solicitors appreciate his ability to grasp complex procedures and processes in their clients’ businesses, and to help Tribunals understand them. He is also particularly interested in the impact of autism in the workplace, and has run a seminar on this topic, working with a consultant psychiatrist.

Personal Injury

As a junior tenant Nick cut his teeth on numerous road traffic small claims and now undertakes a variety of Fast Track and Multi-Track work for both Claimants and Defendants in relation to road traffic accidents (including cases covering LVI, fraud, and credit hire issues), highway claims, ‘slippers and trippers’, accidents at work and occupiers liability amongst others. Nick regularly attends court for trials and interim hearings.

Direct Access
