Jack has practised at Crown Office Chambers since 1999, focusing on personal injury, clinical negligence, product liability and industrial disease cases. He has developed special expertise and interest in cases raising difficult points of law, and those with a scientific or technical aspect.
Jack has extensive trial advocacy experience, as well as regularly representing clients in settlement negotiations. He has earned a reputation for his clear thinking and communication skills, quickly identifying the critical legal and evidential issues in highly complex cases, and grasping a client’s commercial and personal priorities beyond the narrow confines of the litigation. He presents his advice to clients in a straightforward and clearly reasoned way, notable especially in cases where mastery of financial, medical or scientific detail is necessary. He earns praise from clients for his informality and approachability, for his calm tenacity and for his skill in defusing antagonistic situations.
