Nick joined EA Law - East Anglian Chambers after completing a first six pupillage at 4 King's Bench Walk. Whilst there he was involved in a range of commercial cases concerning corporate insolvency, international and domestic trade, agency, commercial property, contract and international arbitration.

The rapid progress Nick has made in establishing himself professionally is reflected in the quality work that he has already undertaken and the notable clients who have instructed him. Examples include:

  • Receiving instructions from an international law firm to attend Bangkok and Singapore to provide assistance to a global insurance company in the assessment and settlement of insurance claims exceeding US $2bn arising out of the 2011 Thai floods.
  • Advising a well known international money lender on several strategic commercial contracts it has with some of the world’s largest banks and financial institutions.
  • Receiving instructions to appear in numerous multi-track cases concerning claims for as much as £500,000 and in interlocutory applications at venues across East Anglia, the Royal Courts of Justice and the Central London County Court.
  • Representing some 200 claimants in a class action against multiple respondents in an employment case.
  • Appearing on behalf of, amongst others: a famous Norwich-based mustard producer; regional developers of prime locations in Norwich and Ipswich; local authorities; well-known high street banks, publishers; insurers and insurance brokers; and in a case against a premiership football club.

Presently, Nick carries on practice in commercial law, general civil law and employment law. He currently receives regular instructions in the following areas:

  • Contract
  • Credit Hire
  • Landlord and Tenant (including contested housing work)
  • Negligence
  • Bailment
  • Insolvency
  • Trusts
  • Employment (for the representation of respondent companies, individual employees and unions in unfair dismissal, redundancy and discrimination claims).

Whilst Nick appears in court almost daily, he enjoys a busy paperwork practice and is prepared to turnaround paperwork quickly if required to do so and at competitive prices.
