Farrar’s Building are excited to announce that Simon Hughes joins Chambers today from Civitas Law in Cardiff.
Simon is a leading specialist personal injury barrister known for his “expertise in cases involving industrial disease and fatal accident claims” (Chambers UK). As a “calm and considered” presence, Simon is also recognised by Legal 500 for being “pragmatic and sensible taking into consideration the difficulties with litigated case loads”, bearing in mind the “best interests of the client”. In addition to his work in high value cases concerning serious injury, fatal accidents or industrial disease, Simon also has extensive experience in cases where fraud or fundamental dishonesty is alleged. Simon sits as both a Recorder and Deputy District Judge, roles which provide an alternative perspective on the presentation of cases and tactical decisions.
Simon comments: “I am very excited to be joining such a successful and progressive set as Farrar’s. I am very much looking forward to getting started in this new Chapter in my career”
Farrar’s Building’s Head of Chambers, and fellow Welshman, Paul Lewis QC says: “I am delighted that Simon accepted our offer of tenancy. As a tier 1 directory ranked personal injury barrister with a vast degree of experience across our core practice areas, he will no doubt be an asset to our set”
Chambers Chief Executive, Paul Cray, adds: “Simon’s recruitment is a continuation of our recent targeted success with lateral recruits, as we continue our journey of growth and transition, attracting new membership to our collegiate, supportive and progressive set. We look forward to working with Simon in this exciting new stage of his career”
