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 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.”
