Bruno became a tenant of Old Square Chambers in October 2016, following the completion of his pupillage.

Prior to joining Old Square, Bruno worked for 14 months as a paralegal at a claimant clinical negligence firm in London. He gained experience in all matters relating to clinical negligence claims, from their inception through to completion.

Furthermore, during Bar School, Bruno took an option module in clinical negligence, gaining an ‘Outstanding’ Grade.

As a part of his training at Old Square Chambers, Bruno spent a number of months under the supervision of clinical negligence supervisor, Fran McDonald. Bruno’s training and practice at Old Square Chambers have allowed him to gain experience, both advocacy and advisory, across clinical negligence, regulatory and healthcare employment matters.

His unique experience from both sides of the legal profession allows Bruno to offer both insight and a team-based approach to claimant clinical negligence work. He hopes to build a strong and successful practice within this area.
