Position

Lloyd is an exceptionally experienced Silk in matters primarily regarding high end brain and spinal injuries in both personal injury and clinical negligence, together with police work and inquests.

An important part of Lloyd’s professional work is to inspire confidence in the client (often very seriously injured clients), confidence in themselves and the team who represents them. 

He advises, guides and reassures the client to ensure that they achieve the best possible result.

Whatever can be done to assist the client and the solicitor will be done, inclusively, reviewing files, having consultations in the evening or at the weekend as well as travelling to meet them at their home or whenever may be convenient. This ensures the client is always at the heart of the process.

Lloyd works closely with a number of senior juniors in 30 Park Place which enables us to offer a combined service, taking different roles in a case, whilst maintaining continuity. This usually results in a considerable saving in both time and costs. 

Lloyd is also Head of the Civil@30 team.
