After qualifying as a Solicitor in a high street practice, doing largely Claimant PI work, he joined Hill Dickinson (then Hill Dickinson Davis Campbell), where he specialised in EL and PL work for local authorities and leisure sector, retail and industry clients. He was made a Partner in 1997, before moving to the Bar in 2002. Having been a lawyer on both sides of the fence, Graham empathises with both instructing solicitors, working in a challenging climate, and his clients’ need for the best outcome. Graham is an approachable, helpful and responsive Barrister who is used to working to client protocols and whose commitment, knowledge, manner and attention to detail make him the first port of call for many clients. Graham fits well into teams and quickly understands drivers behind clients’ strategic initiatives, appreciating how each case is important on its own merits and as part of a wider portfolio of cases.
Particularly well known for his anti-fraud insurance work, he has had many notable successes, with numerous Fundamental Dishonesty findings, including where a former City Mayor was found fundamentally dishonest, in relation to a claim flowing from a minor accident during his year in office. Graham frequently obtains fundamental dishonesty findings for Defendants in Video Trials.
Having been a Solicitor, Graham has a keen interest in costs and case management issues and is regularly involved in such matters.
Graham is happy to provide clear and thorough advice in conference or on paper and to draft documents promptly in all matters.
