Prior to a life at the bar, Kevin originally qualified as a doctor and practised medicine for 7 years. He now practises in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence, acting for both claimants and defendants. His medical background means he is somewhat unique at the bar and is an enormous asset to his clients. He is one of a small number of dual qualification barristers practising in the UK.
Kevin is routinely instructed in high value cases involving clinical negligence in all areas, injury to the central nervous system including catastrophic brain and spinal cord injury, multiple orthopaedic injuries, psychiatric injury and fatal accidents.
He has wide experience and expertise in the following areas:
- Inquests and inquiries – having represented interested parties in the Shipman Inquiry and more recently the inquiry into the death of Chloe Fahey
- Employers liability claims involving injury or disease, particularly where there are novel or complex issues of causation
- Chronic pain syndrome
- Fibromyalgia and reflex sympathetic dystrophy
- Education claims including failure to diagnose dyslexia
and autistic spectrum disorder
- Civil Procedure
