Solicitor, Nick Collins Joins St Pauls

We are delighted to announce that Solicitor, Nick Collins has agreed to join St Pauls Chambers.  Nick will continue in his capacity as a sole practitioner in association with St Pauls

Until joining Chambers Nick spent his whole career with Ford & Warren and more latterly Weightmans following their merger in 2015. Whilst at Ford & Warren, Nick was for many years Head of Litigation and at the time of merger was the firm’s Senior Partner.

‘I am thrilled to be joining St Pauls. It is a new and different approach to litigation. I am looking forward to working closely with Simon Myerson QC and those members of chambers specialising in civil litigation work. I think I can offer a flexible and a different, more cost effective and personable service than provided by the more traditional type of law firm.’

Nick has over 30 years’ experience in civil litigation. His areas of expertise include:


All types of commercial claims including shareholder disputes, breach of contract, negligence, restrictive covenant and misrepresentation actions.

Nick also advises on contract terms and conditions.

Defamation and Harassment

Nick has acted in a number of high profile defamation and harassment actions. Those cases have included a successful defamation and subsequent harassment action pursued by a former Leeds United Director and his wife against Ken Bates who at the time was Leeds United’s chairman. More recent cases have included harassment proceedings pursued by a police authority on behalf of member of its force and the public; senior local authority employees; and senior school staff.

Commercial and Harassment

In both areas of law, Nick has experience of and has successfully obtained interim injunctive relief.


‘We have both felt totally comfortable with the way you have assisted us and approached the various challenging matter faced. I should really apologise for the untimely phone calls, the interruptions to family vacations and the last minute requests for assistance! Your plain speaking and practical advice was always first class and the speed at which you could get to the crux of matters was very impressive!’

‘We have received your new set of correspondence, thank you. I just have to say we are totally overwhelmed with how, in these letters, you have represented our Dad so perfectly and summed up how our family feel about the case. Hence, it is a unanimous thumbs up from us all!’
