Work Department

Private client and tax, Court of Protection and deputyships


A partner in the private client team at Penningtons Manches Cooper, Daniel mainly supports those who have suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of medical negligence or personal injury and have been awarded substantial compensation to meet their future needs. With a particular interest in acquired brain injury, Daniel advises on a broad range of Court of Protection and personal injury trust issues for both professional and lay deputies and trustees.

His area of specialism is working with and supporting the litigation process, both in clinical negligence and personal injury claims. This knowledge is essential in ensuring that the compensation, which can take many years to secure, is properly protected and managed, either through a personal injury trust or a deputyship.


Daniel qualified in 2012, having joined Penningtons Manches Cooper as a trainee in 2010.
