Bernard Pressman

Bernard is a specialist personal injury and clinical negligence practitioner. He has a considerable amount of experience, having been in court frequently throughout his practice, and having acted for both claimants and defendants at every stage in proceedings, from pre-litigation up to and including appeals. He is a thorough advocate, well-known for his style and effectiveness in cross examination, and prides himself on getting results in the most difficult of cases. Bernard is able to assist with every aspect of drafting, attend court for interlocutory matters, trials, costs matters and appeals.


Bernard is happy to deliver talks across a wide variety of topics related to any aspect of his practice. Bernard can deliver talks at a client’s office or is equally content to host people in Chambers (where there will be wine). Bernard is an accredited trainer with the Inns of Court College of Advocacy and is able to lecture on advocacy skills too.
