After reading Law at Nottingham University where (apart from captaining the team on BBC2’s University Challenge!) he won the Nottingham Graduates Mooting Prize, Neil carried out his earlier training in London in the Chambers of Richard Ferguson QC.
Neil has experience acting for both Claimants and Defendants in all areas of work ranging from small claims, fast track trials and disposal hearings to multi-track hearings.
Neil has developed specialisms in personal injury and credit hire work acting for Claimants and Defendant insurers in this area. His criminal background also assists him in areas of alleged fraud, “staged” accidents and phantom passengers.
Neil has a great deal of experience in Road Traffic cases (RTAs), whether it be for trial, negotiation or strategy on either liability or quantum. He also has experience in consideration of fraud matters in relation to RTAs.
Neil is also an Advocacy Tutor for Lincoln’s Inn and an Accredited Mediator. He is also on the Lincoln’s Inn Post-Call Committee and the Bar Representation Committee.
Outside of the law, Neil has a keen interest in sport and in particular hockey. He is a qualified England Hockey umpire and coach.
