About Robert Dunn
Robert became a tenant at Parklane Plowden in 2017.
During his pupillage he was supervised by Dominic Bayne and, from January 2017, Mark Thomas. Under the supervision of Dominic Bayne, Robert was exposed to a wide variety of legal areas, drafting advice in chancery disputes, and developing a strong grounding in unfair dismissal and discrimination claims. With Mark Thomas, Robert focused upon personal injury law, including Highways Act, employers’ liability, and occupiers’ liability claims.
Before starting pupillage, Robert undertook legal aid work in Kampala, Uganda, advising and drafting court documents for clients. When not at work, Robert can often be found running, playing football, or on the terraces of St. James’ Park, or Hillheads Park.
