I have been specialising in work related injuries including mesothelioma, industrial diseases and workplace accidents for over 25 years. I specialise in work accident and disease claims that are complex or display novel features such as overseas claims, psychiatric injury claims and cases that are difficult on causation or liability.
I have a developing international practice. I have recently recovered damages in England for a South African asbestos engineer (Beeslaar v Cape) and have been instructed by an Estonian lorry driver who sustained an injury at work in England, and an Italian cyclist who was in a collision with a lorry in London. I am presently instructed by a Romanian family following the father's death on a construction site in London. Previously I have recovered damages following an accident in Antarctica (Langton v Raytheon).
Sources describe me as "very experienced and very knowledgeable with fantastic attention to detail," adding: "He doesn't shy away from the difficult cases." Legal 500 describe me as an "'exceptional lawyer'" with "'excellent client-handling skills'".
I am an APIL Fellow and Assessor and have written and edited the annual Butterworths Personal Injury Damages Statistics handbook.
