Simon Carroll - B P Collins LLP

Within: Commercial litigation: Beds, Bucks, Herts, Middx

B P Collins LLP fields a team of 'exceptionally good litigators' who combine 'good technical knowledge with a personal service'; for many, the team is 'second to none'. Practice head Matthew Brandis is 'exceptional - incredibly thorough and very good at keeping clients informed and up to date'. He has more than 20 years' experience handling complex contractual disputes, defamation actions and professional negligence claims, and is ably supported by Craig Williams, who 'really considers the clients interests when delivering advice on complex legal issues'; and Nick Hallchurch, whose extensive track record covers shareholder disputes, professional negligence claims against solicitors, health and safety disputes, and regulatory claims. The environmental, technology and pharmaceutical sectors are all key areas of strength for the practice; in an illustration of its capability in the waste management sector, Williams and associate Rajiv Malhotra successfully defended PB Donoghue in a £3m claim for damages arising from oral agreements made with a former HGV driver. In another key matter, Williams and senior associate Simon Carroll represented a local charity in a case arising from a gym operator's failure to make payments and refusal to provide account to avoid fee increases.
