Thorough, knowledgeable, very responsive and personable…Avinder Sidhu, Senior Associate, Kennedys (Clinical Negligence Department)
Aidan has dealt with a number of contempt hearings in the High Court, following findings of dishonesty and intentional breaches of court orders.
Aidan also has significant experience of claims involving fraudulent misrepresentation. In the case of Kadir v Thompson, Aidan successfully challenged the enforceability of a credit hire claim, at first instance and on appeal, on the basis that the hire organisation had made fraudulent misrepresentations regarding a claimant’s liability to pay sizable credit hire charges.View full profile >>

I have had the pleasure of working with Aidan for the last four/five years. Aidan is an excellent barrister and in my view, stands out from other barristers because of his attention to detail and his quick thinking when faced with a difficult situation. Aidan also goes the extra mile with the witnesses, to make them feel at ease and keeping me happy at the same time.
Recently, we attended a Trial together. I normally pride myself in my attention to detail but Aidan spotted something that I had not and, as a result, got us out of what could have been a very sticky situation. Following the Trial, although we settled, the witness told me how impressed he was with Aidan; in particular the calm manner in which he dealt with the situation and the way Aidan made him feel at ease.
Aidan is also very helpful when it comes to “non fee” work and has carried out a number of seminars for my firm and is always happy to help. Recently I managed to persuade him to undertake the Three Peaks Challenge with me! I am not sure Aidan has forgiven me for that yet! I look forward to working with Aidan in the future.
At DWF, my causation team and I have worked with Aidan over the past few years and he has provided exceptional success with his advocacy. We believe that he is thorough, evidences strong technical ability, is enthusiastic and is well liked by our clients.
