30 Park Place Chambers (Chambers of Ruth Henke QC)


Ben specialises exclusively in personal injury work, representing both claimants and defendants. He has particular experience in dealing with Employers Liability, Public Liability and Road Traffic Accidents and undertakes an increasing amount of high value work often involving brain and spinal injuries as well as orthopaedic injuries causing post-traumatic degenerative change, joint replacement or resulting in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Ben’s practice is now exclusively Multi track and he is regularly instructed to draft complicated Schedules of Loss and attend Costs and Case Management Hearings and is often consulted in relation to preparation of Costs Budgets. He also undertakes CICA Appeals and Coroners Inquests.

Ben has spent the last 15 years undertaking personal injury work as a result of which he is able to identify the main issues in a case very quickly. He has a good manner with clients and is easy to work with. Over the years he has developed a practice that is built around repeat instructions from a number of local and national solicitors many of whom send him all of the work that they have in South Wales. He also receives repeat instructions from some of the largest personal injury firms in the country. Ben is flexible in the way that he works and willing to travel to suit the client, often undertaking conferences at solicitors offices and occasionally at clients homes or business premises. Ben is willing to work to fixed fees or charge by the hour.
