Nick Hinchliffe QC joined Chambers in 1980 and developed a widely based practice in his early years involving Crime, Employment and Personal Injury work. After 10 years he was specialising in Employment and Personal Injury and in the years before he took Silk in 1999 he was almost exclusively involved with Personal Injury work covering accidents, clinical negligence, industrial disease and multi-party cases. He developed a particular understanding of asbestos related conditions, solvent exposure and work related limb disorders.
In Silk, Nick has returned to his roots as an Advocate and has received instruction in Employment, Personal Injury and Criminal cases. He recently completed a successful defence of murder after a 3 months trial at the Old Bailey.
In Personal Injury work he represents Claimants and Insurers. He has developed a particular reputation in civil fraud claims due to his tenacious cross-examination. Nick is listed in Chambers and Partners' Directory 2006 and 2005 as one of the leading personal injury Silks on the Northern Circuit.
He has a particular interest in firearm cases based upon his experience as an International Target Rifle Marksman, having represented Great Britain and England on many occasions.
