4 PUMP COURT



He has terrific judgement.

4 PUMP COURT is an ‘exceptionally friendly set‘ that ‘understands the technical aspects of professional negligence cases‘. Members handle claims involving a range of professionals, with expertise that covers technology, telecoms, construction, accountancy, auditors, financial, legal, surveyors and valuers negligence. The ‘efficient‘ set has been involved in several  high-profile solicitors’ negligence cases: Nigel Tozzi QC acted for the defendant solicitors in Evans v Brabners LLP, a claim brought by professional footballer Ched Evans against the law firm which defended him in his first rape trial; Tozzi QC also appeared for the defendant solicitors in Goddard-Watts v Bristol-based Independent UK Law Firm, which alleged the firm failed to ensure the claimant made full disclosure in matrimonial ancillary relief proceedings. Elsewhere, Michael Douglas QC, Aidan Christie QC, Benjamin Pilling QC and Lynne McCafferty QC are involved in The Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry, which examines the causes of the fire and the role numerous core participants may have played in the occurrence and spread of the blaze.
