Inspired by Hardwicke’s fantastic Legal 500 results to join our Clinical Negligence/Personal Injury team?

21 Oct 2019

Hardwicke is currently looking to recruit established barristers to its highly regarded Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury team.

Why should you consider Hardwicke?

  • You will be joining a market leading and award-winning set, recognised for client service and excellent practice management, business development, and career development support services.  You will be joining a PI/Clin Neg team where every member over 10 years’ call is recommended by a legal directory.  Hardwicke is currently celebrating a record number of recommendations and promotions in the new Legal 500 Bar directory.  The Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury team did particularly well with all senior members being recommended and a great write up on the team generally which highlights the high profile cases with which we deal.

HARDWICKE offers ‘a wide and diverse range of barristers’ who are ‘available to provide advice at the drop of a hat to assist and complement those instructing’. Counsel is regularly instructed on cases concerning brain and orthopaedic injuries, fatal accidents as well as Animals Act and Montreal Convention claims. Charles Bagot QC successfully defended a high-profile claim brought by a former male model who sued Lufthansa for £7m in lost earnings, after claiming that a fall at Munich airport left him with an exacerbated squint. High-value claims involving defective staircases and the Defective Premises Act 1974 are particular areas of interest for Colm Nugent; Gemma Witherington regularly acts for insurers and has an increasing practice pertaining to secondary victim cases.  (Legal 500)

  • You will benefit from our high quality, high profile work for major Claimant and Defendant firms and insurers as well as having the opportunity to develop and grow your own particular areas of expertise.
  • You will be able to enjoy the benefits of Hardwicke’s other areas of expertise to expand your practice. See, for example, Colm Nugent’s successful PI/professional negligence claim against a paid McKenzie Friend in Wright v Troy Lucas & Rusz.
  • You will be a member of a dynamic team which, as well as being involved in leading cases pushing the boundaries also values pro bono activity and supports initiatives to improve the Bar and the people who work within it, and the clinical negligence/PI Bar in particular.

If you would like to develop your practice within a forward-thinking, friendly and focused clinical negligence and personal injury team, please get in contact with Amanda Illing, Chief Executive, at (or 020 7242 2523) for an initial confidential discussion.
