With his experience presenting complex cases for the GMC, his in-depth knowledge of policing and police conduct and his understanding of serious crime from his previous work of over twenty years in the criminal courts, Nicholas is used to dealing with the technical medical, forensic and pathology evidence that frequently arise at Inquests. He is adept at dealing with vulnerable witnesses in difficult cases and is an experienced defender of healthcare and other professionals.

Nicholas represented an IP in the Damien Bendell quadruple murder inquests and ‘V39’, the police firearms officer who shot Yassar Yaqub, at the long-running inquest into his death which arose out of a covert police operation. The jury ruled that he was lawfully killed, the Coroner having withdrawn unlawful killing from the jury after written and oral submissions.

Nicholas is an Assistant Coroner.
