General Information

Nick Wright is one of the most approachable, client focused, and easy to deal with barristers you will ever instruct. Nick has made this his trademark since he qualified in 2007. Located in the Midlands, Nick can travel anywhere in England & Wales and is very happy to do so.

Costs

Nick is a specialist in terms of costs hearings. Whether it is a Costs Case Management Conference or a detailed Costs hearing, Nick is always has a thorough knowledge of the issues and will fight hard to secure the best award for the client.

Nick will ensure the maximum costs are recovered when acting for the winning party, or ensure that the minimum costs when those costs are payable. Nick will fight tooth and nail when it comes to the best interest of the client and instructing Solicitors.

Money Claims

For the most part, Nick’s practice revolves around civil money claims in the County & High Courts. His work involves fighting and defending money claims at every level, including personal injury (EI/PL/RTA), professional negligence, road traffic claims (including credit hire and accusations of fraud), contracts, insolvency, consumer credit, and landlord & tenant (commercial and private).

Claimant:      Nick's objective is to help you to recover as much money as you can. Nick is particularly well known for his never-say-die attitude – if he is instructed to fight your corner, that is exactly what he will do, using every tool at his disposal with the skill and passion he brings to his advocacy. You will be left in no doubt that Nick is on your side.

Defendant:     Where Nick is instructed by the defendant his role is to use his expertise to make sure you are protected and he will bring to your case every element of his expertise to ensure your defence is managed and presented in the best possible way.

Free CPD

Nick is happy to come to your offices and offer free CPD talks or interactive workshops. It is a great way for you to get to know him and vice versa. Nick is happy to discuss this with you whenever convenient so please feel free to contact him directly.

Public Access

Nick is accredited to accept instructions directly from the public. He undertakes all types of matters including debt, landlord & tenant, neighbour disputes and well as civil litigation. If you want Nick to read the papers and give you a short free advice he would be happy to do so.

Personal & Future Aspirations

When he’s not at work Nick is a volunteer on the Severn Valley Railway, which is a preserved heritage railway. Nick is very interested in, and devotes a lot of spare time in researching, the law relating to the railway industry.  Disputes surrounding The Rule Book and related RAIB bulletins and investigations are of particular interest. If your work takes you to this specific area of law, Nick would very much like to come and talk to you.

Nick is accredited by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors as a Master Instructor, has completed in excess of 5000 dives all over the world, and has certified over 250 students. The law surrounding SCUBA diving is therefore also of great interest for Nick and he would love to expand his practice in this area.

Nick is also a member of the Magic Circle and regularly attends events and seminars nationally, as well as having a bee apiary in his back garden!

Fees and Feedback

Details regarding our approach to fees can be found at the following link:  http://www.clerksroom.com/content-html?cid=336

SERVICES:

Please see “profile” tab for description of the legal services provided by this barrister.

We aim to complete and return all paperwork within 14 days (2 weeks) of receipt if no specific deadline is provided. We can work to much faster timescales if requested or we can agree a specific target date for each individual circumstance. We will always advise at the outset if counsel is unable to meet any deadline.

Each barrister has a standard hourly rate for their work. The individual hourly rate can be agreed when instructions are acknowledged if preferred. We welcome early discussion as to the suitability of a specific barrister for a specific case. The right barrister will have the relevant expertise to deal with the case but will not be too junior, or too senior depending on the complexities.

We aim to allocate all cases to the correct level of experience & seniority which we believe will prove most to be the most cost effective solution for our clients.

If, due to urgency, we allocate paperwork to a more senior member of Clerksroom, we will charge the appropriate hourly rate for the work, not for the barrister. We welcome early discussion to ensure the correct fee is applied to the case at the outset.
