    • G v L – successfully resisted an application to suspend warrant of possession (November 2018).
  • Personal injury  

    Personal injury

    Dominic’s personal injury practice is founded upon repeat instructions by professional clients acting for insurers, where there are often allegations of “fundamental dishonesty”, or that, upon a claim being struck out, the conduct of a claimant is alleged to be “likely to obstruct the just disposal of proceedings”, so as to depart from the general rule of qualified one-way costs shifting. 

    Fast track trials frequently include claims for credit hire, where there are disputes relating to rate, impecuniosity, mitigation of loss, enforceability, storage and recovery charges, and delivery and collection charges.

    Recent instructions

    • B v P – successfully secured about one-ninth of the sum claimed for credit hire on behalf of the defendant, and successfully applied for a reduction in the amount of the claimant’s fixed costs. Email from professional client, dated 15 November 2019: ‘Many thanks Dominic really appreciate all your efforts on this one and fantastic result!’

    • K v B & Anor – successfully applied to strike out the claimant’s claim for about £12,000 in respect of credit hire, on the basis that there was a legitimate concern with the claimant’s level of English, and, in absence of a translated witness statement, the court could not place any weight on it (October 2019).
    • Y & Anor v E – successfully applied for permission to rely on expert evidence in a low-value claim, despite a failure to apply to amend or vary directions for trial (that did not grant permission to rely on an expert), and a finding that the application was not prompt (October 2019).
    • B v M – successfully settled on the defendant’s terms for about one-third of the amount that was claimed (October 2019).
    • H v A – successfully submitted that a Copley-compliant intervention letter was sent to the claimant’s solicitors, who were acting as agents for their client, and so, due to the agent’s failure to pass this letter on to the claimant, about an eighth of the amount claimed for credit hire should be awarded (October 2019).
    • S v I – successfully settled on the defendant’s terms (September 2019).
    • M v G – successfully represented a taxi driver following an alleged “low velocity impact” collision, who was awarded: about £2,300 general damages for pain, suffering, and loss of amenity; about £6,700 special damages for credit hire, vehicle repairs, physiotherapy, and miscellaneous expenses; and about £9,000 for costs, disbursements, and witness expenses (September 2019).
    • P v E – successfully resisted an application to adjourn a trial date, so that, in response to the claimant’s arguments, the court opined that: “I have never heard such rubbish in my life … That is total nonsense” (August 2019).
    • S v R – successfully resisted admission of a handwritten, contemporaneous note, allegedly admitting liability, on the basis that it was not on the defendant’s list of documents (August 2019).
    • P v W – successfully cross-examined, so that the judge did not need to hear closing submissions from the defendant before dismissing the claim and allowing the counterclaim (August 2019).
    • B v H – successfully secured the full amount that was claimed for credit hire, on the basis that the claimant was impecunious, despite the judge finding that, as no wage slips were provided, and only incomplete bank statements were provided, the claimant had committed a serious and significant breach of the court’s directions, for which there was no good reason (August 2019).
    • R v I – successfully secured a court award of about one-seventh of that claimed on behalf of the defendant, after liability was admitted, and the judge found that an accident management company was acting as an agent for the claimant, so that this agent should have passed the defendant’s intervention letter on to the claimant (August 2019).
    • S v A – successfully cross-examined the claimant in a fast track trial, in which the judge found that the claimant answered questions “in an unnecessarily argumentative way”, and his claim was dismissed (July 2019).
    • S v E – successfully secured a court award of damages that was not greater than the defendant’s final offer in a Stage 3 hearing, and nothing was awarded for six sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy, which were recommended by a consultant psychologist, so that the claimant was ordered to pay the defendant’s costs (July 2019).
    • V v A – successfully adjourned when the defendant’s witnesses did not attend, and, on behalf of the defendant, successfully secured a finding of unreasonable behaviour, so that the claimant was ordered to pay the defendant’s costs of resisting the claimant’s (successful) application for relief from sanctions (July 2019).
    • H v A – successfully cross-examined, so that, in the words of the judge, the claimant accepted that his pleaded case was “completely incorrect”, and his claim was dismissed (July 2019).
    • G v U – successfully challenged the claimant’s witness statements (on the basis that neither complied with court directions, including stating the names of the parties, case number, and the address of the witness), and successfully submitted that there was no evidence of loss in respect of damages for a fleet vehicle, so that, although the cost of repairs was allowed, the claimant was limited to half of his fixed costs (July 2019).
    • K v H – successfully challenged the claimant’s written witness evidence, which attempted to rebut the defendant’s basic hire rates evidence, on the basis that that witness was employed by a subsidiary of a relevant company, and so was not independent (July 2019).
    • Advice on the defendant’s strike out application, the claimant’s relief from sanctions application, quantum (headaches for two years, neck injury for two years, jaw injury for six months, chest injury for six weeks, driving anxiety for six years and four months, and post-traumatic stress disorder for an indeterminate period), and making a Part 36 offer to settle (July 2019).
    • K v R – successfully secured a court award of damages that was not greater than the defendant’s final offer in a Stage 3 hearing, so that the claimant was ordered to pay the defendants costs, plus interest (July 2019).
    • M v H – successfully rebutted allegation of impecuniosity, by eliciting in cross-examination that statements for a relevant bank account had not been disclosed; and successfully rebutted fast track costs, despite particulars of claim for more than £10,000, so that the ‘normal track’ was the fast track (June 2019).
    • Y v N – successfully applied for permission to resile from pre-issue admission of liability, after judgment had been entered, the judgment sum paid, and the key evidence had not been filed with the court or served on the other party (June 2019).

    • K v E – successfully made an oral application to strike out evidence, as the claimant could not understand questions in cross-examination, his directions questionnaire did not confirm that an interpreter was required, and his statement of case and witness statement did not conform to the CPR, so that, upon a further successful oral application, costs were awarded pursuant to a finding that the claimant had “behaved unreasonably” (April 2019).
    • A v G & Anor – email from professional client, dated 23 November 2018: ‘Thank you for your very detailed attendance note and assistance yesterday.  I really appreciate your thoroughness in preparation and attempts to salvage the case when it became apparent that our client was not going to turn up at Court.  Although I always worry whether parties will turn up on the day, we could not anticipate that our client would not actually attend and, ultimately, her non-attendance cost us the case, despite your best efforts.’

  • Mediation  

    Mediation

    Dominic is registered with the Civil Mediation Council as a Civil and Commercial Mediator, abides by the European Code of Conduct for Mediators, and offers access to a complaints process.  He also acts as Counsel in mediations.  His place is confirmed at the Civil Mediation Council's Annual Conference.

    What is mediation?

    Mediation is a confidential process.  It gives people control over the agreement.

    A mediator might provide participants with information about what the law says in a particular circumstance, but they do so from a neutral perspective, with no interest in the agreement.  An agreement cannot be imposed by a mediator.

    Within mediation, offers can be made without influencing what happens if the dispute goes to court.  This enables people to try to reach an agreement without compromising their position.

    If an agreement is reached, reduced to writing, and signed, it is binding like any other contract.  If court proceedings have already commenced, an order of the court which reflects the agreement can be made by further agreement.

    For more information, see the following pages on the website of the Civil Mediation Council:

    Recent instructions as Counsel

    • E v M – successfully facilitated settlement for a five-figure sum, following nine-and-a-half-hour mediation, after proceedings were issued, alleging personal injury and disrepair to property (April 2019).
    • A v A – successfully facilitated settlement for a five-figure sum, after a ten-hour mediation on behalf of the claimant, who was alleging disrepair to property (April 2018).

    European Code of Conduct for Mediators

    The European Code of Conduct for Mediators (“the code of conduct”) sets out a number of principles to which Dominic has voluntarily decided to commit himself, under his own responsibility.  It is applicable in all kinds of mediation in civil and commercial matters.

    For the purposes of the code of conduct, mediation means any structured process, however named or referred to, whereby two or more parties to a dispute attempt by themselves, on a voluntary basis, to reach an agreement on the settlement of their dispute with the assistance of a third person – hereinafter “the mediator”.

    Adherence to the code of conduct is without prejudice to national legislation, or rules regulating individual professions.

    1. COMPETENCE, APPOINTMENT AND FEES OF MEDIATORS AND PROMOTION OF THEIR SERVICES

    1.1. Competence

    Mediators must be competent and knowledgeable in the process of mediation.  Relevant factors include proper training and continuous updating of their education and practice in mediation skills, having regard to any relevant standards or accreditation schemes.

    1.2. Appointment

    Mediators must confer with the parties regarding suitable dates on which the mediation may take place.  Mediators must verify that they have the appropriate background and competence to conduct mediation in a given case before accepting the appointment.  Upon request, they must disclose information concerning their background and experience to the parties.

    1.3. Fees

    Where not already provided, mediators must always supply the parties with complete information as to the mode of remuneration which they intend to apply.  They must not agree to act in a mediation before the principles of their remuneration have been accepted by all parties concerned.

    1.4. Promotion of mediators’ services

    Mediators may promote their practice provided that they do so in a professional, truthful and dignified way.

    2. INDEPENDENCE AND IMPARTIALITY

    2.1. Independence

    If there are any circumstances that may, or may be seen to, affect a mediator’s independence or give rise to a conflict of interests, the mediator must disclose those circumstances to the parties before acting or continuing to act.

    Such circumstances include:

    • any personal or business relationship with one or more of the parties;
    • any financial or other interest, direct or indirect, in the outcome of the mediation;
    • the mediator, or a member of his firm, having acted in any capacity other than mediator for one or more of the parties.

    In such cases the mediator may only agree to act or continue to act if he is certain of being able to carry out the mediation in full independence in order to ensure complete impartiality and the parties explicitly consent.

    The duty to disclose is a continuing obligation throughout the process of mediation.

    2.2. Impartiality

    Mediators must at all times act, and endeavour to be seen to act, with impartiality towards the parties and be committed to serve all parties equally with respect to the process of mediation.

    3. THE MEDIATION AGREEMENT, PROCESS AND SETTLEMENT

    3.1. Procedure

    The mediator must ensure that the parties to the mediation understand the characteristics of the mediation process and the role of the mediator and the parties in it.

    The mediator must in particular ensure that prior to commencement of the mediation the parties have understood and expressly agreed the terms and conditions of the mediation agreement including any applicable provisions relating to obligations of confidentiality on the mediator and on the parties.

    The mediation agreement may, upon request of the parties, be drawn up in writing.

    The mediator must conduct the proceedings in an appropriate manner, taking into account the circumstances of the case, including possible imbalances of power and any wishes the parties may express, the rule of law and the need for a prompt settlement of the dispute. The parties may agree with the mediator on the manner in which the mediation is to be conducted, by reference to a set of rules or otherwise.

    The mediator may hear the parties separately, if he deems it useful.

    3.2. Fairness of the process

    The mediator must ensure that all parties have adequate opportunities to be involved in the process.

    The mediator must inform the parties, and may terminate the mediation, if:

    • a settlement is being reached that for the mediator appears unenforceable or illegal, having regard to the circumstances of the case and the competence of the mediator for making such an assessment, or
    • the mediator considers that continuing the mediation is unlikely to result in a settlement.

    3.3. The end of the process

    The mediator must take all appropriate measures to ensure that any agreement is reached by all parties through knowing and informed consent, and that all parties understand the terms of the agreement.

    The parties may withdraw from the mediation at any time without giving any justification.

    The mediator must, upon request of the parties and within the limits of his competence, inform the parties as to how they may formalise the agreement and the possibilities for making the agreement enforceable.

    4. CONFIDENTIALITY

    The mediator must keep confidential all information arising out of or in connection with the mediation, including the fact that the mediation is to take place or has taken place, unless compelled by law or grounds of public policy to disclose it.  Any information disclosed in confidence to mediators by one of the parties must not be disclosed to the other parties without permission, unless compelled by law.

    The European Code of Conduct for Mediators is available in full by clicking here.

    Complaints procedure

    All complaints will be acknowledged in writing within five working days of receipt.

    All complaints will be investigated and responded to within 21 working days of receipt.

    On occasions, further time may be required, in which case the complainant will be notified in writing.

    If the response is not accepted, the complainant can appeal to the Civil Mediation Council on certain grounds.

    Details of the Civil Mediation Council’s appeal processes can be found by clicking here.
