Year of Call:
Will’s main areas of work are personal injury, clinical negligence and employment law, as well as professional discipline.
Will is regularly instructed in a wide range of multi-track personal injury actions in the County Court, as well as more specifically in clinical negligence cases. He is instructed by both Claimants and Defendants, which he strongly believes enables him to provide a better service to clients on either side of personal injury litigation. He also appears at inquests.
Will also appears in the Employment Tribunal on a regular basis, representing both Claimants and Respondents, as well as in the Employment Appeal Tribunal. He is regularly instructed in multi-day discrimination, whistleblowing and unfair dismissal cases, amongst others.
Within the employment sphere Will has a particular interest in claims involving medical personnel, having acted for both NHS Trusts and medical employees (including doctors). He also has experience of employment disputes in the civil courts.
In addition, and complementing these areas of practice, Will also has a particular interest in Regulatory and Disciplinary Law, in particular medical disciplinary proceedings. He has appeared on behalf of registrants before the GMC and other professional disciplinary tribunals, in particular the NMC (as well as acting as a case presenter).
Will is of the view that his different areas of practice compliment each other, and the experience he has gained in each area is very often of benefit to his clients and cases in the other areas.
Will is a tenacious advocate both orally and on paper, able to grasp complex factual situations quickly and to present arguments persuasively. He takes pride in providing advice that is thorough and on time, and always maintains a focus on his clients’ needs and priorities.
Will studied Modern History at Oxford University, before completing his Graduate Diploma in Law. He is a Lord Denning Scholar of Lincoln’s Inn, and was a Pegasus Scholar to Washington DC in 2012.
Outside of the law, his interests are history, politics, music and sport, rowing in particular, having twice coxed the Great Britain Under 18 VIII at the Junior World Championships, as well as the Oxford reserve boat in the 2004 Boat Race.
