Experience Profile

Nick is a Serious Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon in London.

His area of expertise is in handling serious and catastrophic injury claims as well as those involving fatal accidents. He is the firm’s local practice development leader for brain and spinal injuries in London.

With more than 15 years’ experience, he has made a name for himself as a litigator who regularly wins large sums of compensation for his clients.

In 2014 he won a hotly contested trial in the High Court for a brain injured victim, securing one of the lowest reported deductions of its kind for the claimant’s own contribution to the accident.

Nick contributes articles to the legal press on a regular basis and provides regular external training.

He also speaks vocational French.
