Work Department

Personal injury, clinical negligence, disease, counter fraud, criminal regulatory and underground services damage.


Jason specialises principally in high-value personal injury, clinical negligence, disease, counter fraud and regulatory defence work. He has a particular speciality in claims involving underground services damage. He is highly regarded for his formidable cross-examination skills and keen eye for detail. Many clients instruct him as an alternative to using leading counsel in catastrophic claims. Notable cases include: Hullock v East Riding of Yorkshire CC [2009] EWCA Civ 1039 (successful appeal relating to payment of costs by a claimant who had exaggerated claim and in light of video evidence had settled claim for the same sum received by way of interim payments many months earlier. Claimant was ordered to pay costs of the defendant since the date of the interim payment); British Telecommunications plc v Geraghty & Miller International Inc [2004] EWHC 2095 (QB) (the leading case concerning the scope and quantification of damages recoverable by BT for negligent damage to its apparatus. Claimant failed to recover more than defendant’s Part 36 offer after a two-week Mercantile Court trial and was ordered to pay costs exceeding £1m); Paintin v Stella Musical Production Ltd [2003] 5 QR (the first reported case of provisional damages following DVT with late risks of DVT/thrombophlebitis).
