Hugo specialises in personal injury, road traffic, consumer and contract disputes, employment and education law.
In addition to his litigation practice, he is an Associate Professor of Law at Plymouth University, where he teaches contract law and dispute resolution skills, and has experience in relation to student complaints and appeals, as well as employment matters.

Hugo is very approachable and is a highly skilled and confident advocate, with the ability to get the best results for his clients through meticulous preparation, drive and determination. Since recently joining Clerksroom, he has received excellent feedback, both from clients and those instructing him.

He is happy to provide advice, support and representation in the following areas:

Personal Injury

Road traffic

Contract and Consumer




Hugo gave good advice throughout. Eventually in court his predictions regarding the defence became true. This gave me confidence in being able to respond to cross examination in a measured way. The outcome was a good one. If I was ever called to court in the future, I would feel more than comfortable with Hugo as my representing barrister.
