Personal injury and clinical negligence group; employment law group. Mr Hinchliffe has followed the long and distinguished tradition of personal injury counsel at 9 St John Street. He was listed in the latest edition of 'Chambers & Partners'' directory as being a leading Silk on the Northern Circuit and is described as 'tenacious and constructive'; also featured in 'The Legal 500'. Recent notable cases include: Limb v Union Jack Removals Ltd  1 WLR 1354 (CA); and Heil and Others (CA) in relation to pain and suffering awards. From the outset Mr Hinchliffe's practice has been claimant-based, but in recent years defendants/insurers have been increasingly quick to send instructions and his practice has now developed a claimant/defendant ratio of 70%/30%; now deals exclusively with personal injury, clinical negligence, industrial disease and multi-party cases. These include all types of factory and road traffic accidents. Industrial disease work includes asbestosis, dermatitis, RSI and industrial cancer. In the early years in chambers he had a general practice dealing with all types of litigation. This was soon refined to two distinct areas - personal injury and employment, with the latter taking a back seat to personal injury. The only interruption is the annual invitation to represent Great Britain's rifle team somewhere in the southern hemisphere.
