Nathan Tavares QC, a member of the JPIL Editorial Board as well as a barrister at Outer Temple Chambers, was invited to join his JPIL colleagues on stage at the APIL Advanced Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Conference 2022 for the ‘JPIL Case and Comment’ segment on the final day of the conference. The conference was held at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales on 18th – 20th May and was also available to attend remotely.
This annual event updated attendees on the most recent and advanced developments in brain and spinal cord injuries. A range of talks were given by a number of Medical Consultants, Leading Practitioners and Expert Witnesses.
Nathan joined fellow JPIL colleagues for a ‘Case and Comment’ segment:
Nathan discussed the cases of Martin v Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Jeremy Stansfield v BBC.
The Journal of Personal Injury Law (JPIL) is published quarterly in association with APIL. It provides recent developments in personal injury, covering cases, statutes and regulations, with their implications for practitioners.
Nathan Tavares QC specialises in clinical negligence, catastrophic personal injury claims, product liability, and professional negligence. He is regarded by solicitors and opponents interviewed by the legal directories for having “sound judgment“, “an industrious approach“, “a measured and independent perspective“, and “a good approachable manner“
Over recent years Nathan has acted in some of the highest value actions in his field, for example Collier v Norton where he represented a tetraplegic teenager whose claim is currently believed to be the largest approved settlement of its kind (in excess of £20 million – see the introduction to Facts & Figure 2016/17 for comment on this case). Also Williams v Brown with damages agreed in excess of £10 million.
Nathan has sat as a judge of the Mental Health Tribunal since 2004. He also sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Personal Injury Law to which he is a regular contributor. Additionally, he is a contributory author to the legal chapters in Brain Injury Claims, a new practitioner text published by Sweet & Maxwell.
