Areas of expertise / specialisation

Jack has been heavily involved in a number of complex high profile cases, including the first case to ever test the extent of the MoD’s duty of care to protect soldiers against the risk of Q Fever. Jack also has experience in helping to run a large volume of litigation based around the dangerous antimalarial drug, Lariam. These cases engaged complex issues of clinical care and drug administration provided to military troops, and subsequent injuries to their mental health, including issues such as severe psychosis or epilepsy.

Jack’s work covers a broad range of Clinical Negligence claims brought against Hospitals and GPs, as well as Military and AFCS work, and has assisted with a number of serious and complex cases of real sensitivity. Such cases have involved missed cancer diagnoses; mental health injuries; birth injury claims; negligent drug prescription; and, actions challenging policies that failed to protect employees or patients.

In his spare time, Jack enjoys playing rugby, acting, reading, philosophy, and drinking wine with his friends.
