Park Square Barristers possess the leading regional disease team on the North Eastern Circuit, with an enviable depth and breadth of talent that accepts both defendant and claimant instructions. We take particular pride in having a national presence, combined with a familiar local approach.
Our barristers have appeared in a number of the leading authorities on the Limitation Act 1980 and all have a strong working knowledge of the corresponding case law. We regularly offer training in this area to solicitors and insurers.
Noise induced hearing loss and work-related upper limb disorders, including vibration white ﬁnger (‘VWF’), hand-arm vibration syndrome (‘HAVS’), carpal tunnel syndrome (‘CTS’) and repetitive strain injury (‘RSI’) claims form the backbone of our offering. Our leading juniors and Queen’s Counsel also manage allergy, asbestos, cancer, COSHH, dermatitis, mesothelioma and all other varieties of respiratory disease claims.
We offer particular expertise in stress related illnesses, with our specialist practitioners able to accept instructions in both the civil jurisdiction and employment tribunal for claims involving negligence, breaches of contract, bullying, discrimination, harassment (both s.26 Equality Act 2010 and Protection from Harassment Act 1997), nervous shock, overwork and protected disclosures.
Those members involved in more complex employers’ liability matters work collaboratively with our counter-fraud, criminal regulatory and clinical negligence teams. We are first and foremost trial advocates, with many of our members having begun their careers in criminal litigation. Our team prides itself on the knowledge, talent and practicality of its members who are deservedly renowned as robust negotiators.
We are a Legal 500 Tier 1 Set that offers bespoke in-house training, regular professional seminars, digital legal updates, webinars and blog resources. Our barristers are members of the Personal Injury Bar Association and Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
