12 King's Bench Walk (Chambers of Paul Russell QC)

Position

Niall is sought after for high value and complex personal injury and clinical negligence work: fatalities and injuries of the utmost severity; brain and spinal damage; complex orthopaedic and amputation cases; psychiatric conditions; and intentional torts (including historic abuse). Niall also has a strong specialist industrial disease practice, in particular acting for claimants in asbestos cases giving rise to complex questions of breach of duty (including allegations of “low exposure”), causation and quantum. He was appointed in 2015 to the Attorney General’s C Panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown, a select group of barristers who undertake civil work on behalf of central government departments. Niall’s appellate practice is growing rapidly, having appeared in 2016 in the Supreme Court (led) in Knauer v Ministry of Justice and in the Court of Appeal (unled) in Scott v Gavigan. Niall has considerable experience in cases involving allegations of fraud, exaggeration and malingering. He is particularly well-versed in the complex evidential and strategic issues that arise in claims involving pain disorders of all varieties. Niall is also interested in professional (particularly solicitors’) negligence work.
