Biography

Jeremy practices in all aspects of personal injury litigation including road traffic accidents, employer’s liability claims, consumer protection law, occupiers’ liability claims, sporting accidents and occupational disease. His particular specialism is in brain injury; multiple orthopaedic injury; and fatal accident cases. He also has a particular interest in cases with a psychiatric component where his disarming manner enables him to explore the most delicate and emotional aspects of a claimant’s injury. In addition, his ability to develop an early and trusted rapport with clients is one of the foundations of his busy practice.

Jeremy is currently instructed by both Claimants and Defendants (67/33% split) and he conducts cases in his own right and as junior counsel. At the present time he is conducting cases valued at in the region of £1 million and he is junior counsel to Grahame Aldous QC and Andrew Ritchie QC in cases that are likely to exceed £1 million. Given this experience Jeremy is well used to managing cases involving multiple witnesses and experts and in drafting detailed Schedules / Counter-Schedules.

Jeremy has experience in insurance and commercial litigation which stretches back to his involvement as a paralegal at CMS Cameron McKenna in the multi-billion pound Bank of America litigation and Lloyds marine insurance litigation. Since then he has conducted cases involving partnership disputes; sale of goods; general commercial disputes (excluding property) and underground damage claims. In the latter he is instructed by both multi-national utility companies and contractors with such litigation invariably involving multiple parties within the Technology and Construction Court.

Jeremy has growing experience in all areas of clinical negligence. He has also recently contributed to the 9 Gough Square publication “Clinical Negligence”.
