Between 2017 and 2023, Adam worked as part of a dedicated in-house Advocacy team at a large Defendant firm where he was the head of the team’s Ministry of Justice Portal section, a role he carried out alongside a significant volume of trial work and a busy paperwork practice.

Adam has gained experience far beyond his qualified years in the personal injury sphere and is comfortable in dealing with all types of work. In his most recent role, he was regularly instructed to defend the interests of insurance companies at CCMCs, complex interlocutory hearings and at trial but he is equally comfortable in representing Claimants.

Adam is a forceful and persuasive advocate who regularly delivers excellent results through forensic cross-examination, particularly in low-velocity impact cases – including where findings of fundamental dishonesty have been made.

Adam prides himself on his drafting work and he has significant experience in settling pleadings on a wide variety of issues and valuations.
