Barrister

Hamish has a vast range of experience garnered over almost 15 years at the Bar. He is rated as a leading Junior on the Western Circuit by the Legal 500. Having spent over 8 years as in house Counsel at a major national firm of solicitors, he moved to Queen Square Chambers in 2011. He therefore has an appreciation of the pressures and concerns which instructing solicitors have in running cases. He has been commended for making a very stressful experience as comfortable as it could be.

His practice covers a wide range of personal injury cases. He has a detailed knowledge of the costs provisions and is therefore particularly adept at budgeting hearings.  His emphasis is on providing practical advice and cutting to the heart of any dispute.

In addition to his Court and advisory work, Hamish is much in demand for his seminars. They are always well received and described as being practical and accessible, with a light touch employed to convey often complex legal analysis.
