Western Circuit

Personal Injuries Bar Association

John Isherwood is instructed on a regular basis for both claimant and defendant clients in complex cases involving catastrophic injury and brain damage caused by road traffic, employment/occupier-related and other accidents, with instructions and paperwork processed almost invariably within a week.

He also has a breadth of experience in Industrial-disease actions including mesothelioma, vibration white finger (VWF) and hearing damage claims.

Instructed by some of the UK’s biggest insurers as well as local firms, he is one of the most approachable and ‘user-friendly’ juniors on the circuit.

His ability to ‘cut to the chase’, give clear, concise advice and adopt a pragmatic approach puts him in high demand.

John has a ready willingness to proceed to trial, should his habitually robust negotiation style prove ineffective, where his down-to-earth approach and formidable factual recall make him a redoubtable opponent.
