Practice Overview

Gareth has a busy and deliberately wide-ranging practice.   His specialisms include clinical negligence; commercial work, including issues of European law and data protection; and personal injury (including industrial disease).

He has significant group litigation experience, reflecting his core practise areas.  He is currently instructed in:

  • The VW NOx Litigation arising out of the 2015 Diesel-gate scandal
  • Allied litigation against a number of other diesel vehicle manufacturers
  • The Ticketmaster data breach litigation
  • The Equifax data breach litigation
  • Transvaginal mesh (TVM) defective medical products litigation
  • Essure contraceptive device defective medical products litigation

He is keen to be involved with cases at an early stage and is happy to advise informally and meet with lay clients.  He understands the need to ensure that expert evidence is properly handled from the beginning of a case and can provide assistance with the instruction and selection of appropriate experts.  He enjoys working as part of a team alongside his instructed solicitors to achieve the best outcomes for clients.
