Head of Southend Office
DD: 01702 411 133
After 13 years undertaking a broad range of personal injury work, Stuart joined BC Legal’s disease team in June 2015.
In his first three years with the firm, Stuart ran a mixed litigated caseload including cumulative back, cumulative knee, WRULD, NIHL, HAVS and respiratory illness claims. Stuart was a member of our specialist short tail team and also dealt with claims involving some of the more unusual diseases such as Legionnaire's disease, UVC exposure and leptospirosis. Over the course of his first three years, Stuart achieved in excess of 50 discontinuances and strike outs.
In addition to his regular caseload, Stuart conducted a number of procedural applications involving complex CPR issues, often successfully raising procedural issues which had not been considered by the Courts in the past.
Stuart provides regular in house training to clients and is always available on the phone to provide immediate guidance on any issue.
In July 2018, Stuart became Head of Southend Office. Stuart’s role is now predominantly supervisory but he continues to deal with appeals and complex procedural applications, which involve issues that have the potential to affect the wider market. Stuart continues to undertake advocacy and oversees lawyers across the firm in applications involving existing and emerging procedural issues.
