Called to the Bar in 1990
"Fast and technically very sound. I've never instructed any other barrister who has been so accurate on the quantum of personal injury awards, as tested a number of times at trial. A pleasure to work with too. Highly recommended." -Michael Williamson, Williamsons Solicitors
Geoffrey has 20+ years experience in personal injury law but is far more approachable than that would suggest. Having caught the surfing bug while still in London, he gradually moved as far west as he could to be close to the waves.
Based in Truro, he prefers to stay west of Bristol for CFA fast track matters but is willing to go further afield for multi track matters. He is also happy to accept instructions on DPA and CFA bases.
Geoffrey undertakes claimant and defendant instructions, for the following types of work:-
•All types of interlocutory hearings including case management conferences, allocation hearings, pre-trial reviews and applications.
•Multi track, fast track and small claims track, trials and disposal hearings.
•MOJ stage 3 hearings.
•Infant approval hearings.
•All types of written advice and pleadings.
•Conferences with clients.
He has particular experience and expertise in the following matters:
• Employers Liability (including WRULD, asbestosis & mesothelioma and occupational stress)
• Occupiers Liability
• Product Liability
• Public Liability
• Animals Act claims
• MOD claims
• Fraud (particularly third party costs orders against solictors, claims management companies and credit hire companies)
• Consumer Credit (claimant and defendant)
• Road Traffic Accidents (particularly motorcycles, Low Velocity Impact claims and claims involving the MIB)
• MOJ Stage 3 Hearings
• Fatal Accidents
He is always happy to discuss potential new instructions on the phone or by email. He can be contacted at any time on 0845 083 3000 or by email using Killen@clerksroom.com.
Geoffrey spends his leisure time surfing (of course), mountain biking and running after his dogs.
