Nicholas Bidnell Edwards


Nicholas was called to the Bar in 2012. He has a broad employment and civil practice. He has received praise for his conduct of cases from opponents, and High Court Judges have remarked on how “skilfully” he develops his submissions. A leading employment silk has described his advocacy as “confident, and very persuasive”, and remarked that his written submissions were “very well structured, and thorough”.

In addition to advisory work, Nicholas appears frequently in Court, and in Employment Tribunals. He has acted in the Court of Appeal, and has drafted successful pleadings, and Notices of Appeal.

Nicholas has acted for both Claimants and Defendants in a broad range of commercial disputes involving private individuals and companies. He appears in the County Court and in the High Court in matters relating to contract disputes, general debt recovery, and has successfully resisted an application for injunctive relief.
