Huw Davies

Huw is still my preferred Barrister, his passion for the job has not subsided in any way, in fact to this day he treats every case whether it be a straightforward public liability claim or one worth a million pounds with the same dedication and determination.

Costs

Huw is regularly instructed in relation to costs issues (including costs budgeting) and has experience in arguing both general and technical cost points in both the County and High Courts. He has provided several seminars in relation to the Jackson Reforms and Qualified One Way Costs Shifting.

Recent cases of interest include:

Carter v The Governing Body of Magdalen College Oxford –  a preliminary issue was successfully brought on the part of the College seeking a declaration that a discrimination claim that included a claim for injury to feelings did not benefit from QOCS protection.

Simonjana v Amey PLC – a successful application made on behalf of the defendant to recover significant costs incurred in a claim which was issued on the cusp of limitation but where no particulars of claim or claim form were served before discontinuance.

Testimonials


“Huw is still my preferred Barrister, his passion for the job has not subsided in any way, in fact to this day he treats every case whether it be a straightforward public liability claim or one worth a million pounds with the same dedication and determination.”

“I have worked with Huw on a number of different cases over the last 10 years. His expert knowledge, attention to detail and great advocacy skills never cease to impress me.”

Personal Interests


Huw sadly realised at a very young age that he would never make a professional sportsman, having two left feet and no co-ordination. He is however a fanatical Welsh rugby fan and will happily talk about rugby at length with anyone who would care to listen.

Having been brought up in Hong Kong he has retained a keen interest in travel, and will gladly take instructions from anyone willing to send him to an exotic location, though will be more than happy to attend the District Registry at Hull County Court if needs must.
