Bruno specialises in personal injury and clinical negligence work. He offers the full range of advocacy, advisory and drafting services, representing both defendants and claimants.

Bruno regularly appears in the County and High Court for trials, interlocutory applications, CMCs and CCMCs.

With a BSc and MSc in biological sciences, Bruno has a good grasp of medical issues. He is increasingly instructed in claims involving complex injuries, including CRPS, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury and spinal injury.

He has recently been appointed to the Attorney General’s C Panel.

Further detail of Bruno’s work can be found under the relevant headings below.

Before coming to the Bar, Bruno enjoyed a successful career in management and operations for a global high-end restaurant group, allowing him to hone excellent client care skills.

In addition, having previously worked as a paralegal for a claimant firm specialising in personal injury and clinical negligence (between law school and the commencement of pupillage), and having now been on secondment as in-house counsel within a large defendant firm, Bruno is particularly aware of the demands placed upon his professional client.

During his professional training (BPTC), Bruno won three national advocacy competitions. He attained a further prize in an international mediation tournament. Bruno was awarded the Lord Denning Scholarship and Lord Brougham Scholarship from Lincoln’s Inn.

Testimonial

“Well prepared and eloquent, Bruno is an exceptional all round advocate who possesses the intelligence and flexibility to adapt a case to changing circumstances in court. In addition to his outstanding presentational skills, Bruno upholds an admirable level of client care and is adept at guiding individual claimants through the difficult and stressful tribunal process. Highly recommended.”

Bruno regularly appears in the County Court and High Court. His advocacy practice includes fast track trials, multi track trials, CMCs, CCMCs and interlocutory application hearings.

He has been involved in factually complex trials, including multiple-vehicle collisions and multi-defendant EL claims.

Bruno is instructed in increasingly high value claims, often involving complex injuries. He has particular experience with spinal injury claims.

In terms of his paper-based practice, Bruno is regularly instructed to draft pleadings, schedules, agendas and skeleton arguments. He also has a busy advisory practice, providing advice on all matters relating to litigation for both claimants and defendants.

Bruno’s work in this area has also led to him being instructed in:

  • Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority cases;
  • First-tier Tribunal appeals; and
  • Army Service Complaints

With a background in biological sciences, Bruno is well suited to this area.

Bruno regularly provides advisory and drafting services for both claimants and defendants but has particular experience acting for large medical defence organisations.

In addition, Bruno has significant experience in interlocutory, costs and case management issues, both in the High Court and County Court. He is often instructed to deal with issues surrounding expert evidence, causation and quantum.

Before coming to OSC, Bruno was employed for 14 months as a paralegal for a claimant clinical negligence firm, working within their spinal injury team. He continues to act regularly in high-value spinal claims.
