Gavin enjoys an extensive and almost exclusive personal injury practice.  He commands a large and loyal solicitor base, and provides a comprehensive service.

He is regarded as a highly competent advocate, a skill honed in his early years in practice in criminal law.

He is client friendly, being regarded as sympathetic and approachable yet equally clear and objective.

His serious injury practice involves all aspects of personal injury – particularly catastrophic injury, employer’s liability, public liability and highway litigation.

Gavin is a local boy, having been educated at The Manchester Grammar School.  He then studied at Pembroke College, Cambridge and City University, London before returning home.

Gavin joined Chambers in 2008, having moved from Peel Court Chambers, in order to focus on and broaden his personal injury practice.


Gavin appears regularly at inquests. In the main, he represents the family to whom he provides sympathetic yet objective support.

The majority of Gavin’s time is now spent in conferences, JSMs and paperwork, although he enjoys a good fight in trial. He continues to be particularly active in cases involving allegations of fraud, low velocity impact collision and credibility issues. He has an interest and experience in claims for accidents abroad.

‘Gavin is brilliant, down-to-earth, and always happy to talk things through, sometimes at short notice. He is always mindful of his instructions and always has commerciality and the client’s best interests at the forefront of his mind.’
