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.”

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Negligence

  • Misrepresentation actions
  • Contract terms and conditions.

Nick has experience of and has successfully obtained interim injunctive relief.
