Iain is a senior junior practicing in health and safety matters, including prosecutions under the HSWA and other health and safety related legislation, inquests, personal injury and clinical negligence. In addition, he acts on behalf of and against police forces and private custody providers in respect of a variety of claims relating to arrests and detention, as well as misfeasance and judicial review.

Iain has particular experience in matters arising out of the provision of healthcare, including advising and representing NHS Trusts, healthcare professionals, private prison healthcare providers and both local authority and privately-run care homes.    This includes defending prosecutions, civil claims and HRA related matters as well as representing PIPs in inquests.

In addition, Iain represents companies in the construction, utilities, energy and manufacturing sectors.  He undertakes lengthy civil and criminal trials and inquests relating to deaths arising out of construction and maintenance processes as well as personal injury cases on behalf of insurers and claimants following accidents in the workplace and work accidents involving members of the public.

As Iain’s experience encompasses both criminal prosecutions and civil claims arising out of health and safety legislation, he is able to advise upon both those aspects and upon the impact of matters arising in one aspect upon the other.
