Position

Adam has a common law and civil practice, with a particular emphasis on personal injury and employment litigation. He drafts, advises and appears in court and tribunals on behalf of claimants and defendants/respondents and has conducted interlocutory advocacy in cases worth in excess of £1M. The general scope of cases in which he is involved runs up to and includes those of ‘six figure’ value. He has lectured firms of solicitors on numerous subjects within the field. Interesting recent cases concern the widely-reported civil action brought by a victim of Ian Huntley in respect of a serious sexual assault prior to the commission of the Soham murders; the relationship between the principles laid down in Parry v Cleaver and the provision of benefits in kind by insurance companies; the recovery of charges from hire purchase companies refusing to consent to disposal of damaged vehicles; the applicability of fixed cost regimes and the construction of ‘costs only proceedings’ prior to clarification of the rules in April 2005. He retains an academic interest in comparative law, French law, history and politics.
