Notable Cases

Hillier v Southern Rock Insurance Company Limited (2020)
Martin successfully represented the Defendant at first instance, on appeal, and was led by Jamie Carpenter QC in drafting the Respondent’s Notice for second appeal. The Court of Appeal refused permission to appeal. The Claimant’s credit hire claim was struck out as an abuse of process. The Claimant had compromised his entire claim at Stage 2 of the MOJ portal process.

Parker v MIB (2019)
In 2015 Mr Parker was the victim of a hit-and-run accident in which he suffered life-changing injuries. Martin advised in writing and in conference, and settled a complex Schedule of Loss including a claim for considerable future losses. The matter ultimately settled for a significant six-figure sum favourable to the Claimant.
