Prior to qualifying as a solicitor, Chris was called to the Bar in 2008. Since joining Stewarts, Chris has recovered damages in excess of £80m for his clients.


  • Secured settlement on behalf a front seat passenger in a car being driven by an uninsured driver, who as a result of the accident, was diagnosed with fractures at C4, C5, T3 and T4 and complete tetraplegia. The MIB alleged C’s injuries were contributed to by his own negligence and denied it had any contingent liability. A £10.75m settlement was agreed prior to a preliminary issue trial.
  • Secured settlement on behalf of a protected party who sustained a catastrophic brain injury in a road traffic accident, valued on a conventional lump sum basis at just over £9.5m with the Financial Services Compensation Scheme as the de facto defendant.
  • Secured settlement on behalf of a grandfather hit from behind by a forklift truck at work, ultimately resulting in bilateral below knee amputation. Following the successful conclusion of his case, he returned to an active lifestyle.
