Profile

Glen has a great deal of trial experience mainly acting for defendants. He specialises in professional liability (lawyers, accountants, surveyors, architects, engineers and insurance brokers) clinical negligence, personal injury, product liability, civil actions against the police and disciplinary proceedings.

As a general rule Glen believes that the best way to settle an action is to make an early and realistic Part 36 offer. If your opponent is well advised he will accept the offer and the claim will settle. If he is not well advised and he forces you into a trial he will end up paying the bulk of the costs.

Glen is often instructed to represent the defendant in mediations or settlement meetings. Most of these claims settle at or shortly after the mediation or meeting.

Memberships:

Glen is a member of the Midland Circuit and the Professional Negligence Bar Association.
