Partner & Head of Volume Litigation, Motor & Casualty

Patrick embodies Horwich Farrelly’s commitment to recognising and rewarding talent, having risen from trainee solicitor to partner in a little over seven years. Patrick’s areas of expertise include catastrophic loss, MOJ claims, motor claims and costs.

He is regularly instructed in cases involving technical points on the interpretation of the Civil Procedure Rules and Pre-Action Protocol and leads a team of lawyers specialising in this area, dealing with such issues as the inappropriate removal of matters from the portal by claimants. Notable cases include the appeal of Cunningham v AST Express & ANR (2009) and, more recently, he was instructed to act on behalf of the respondent in the case of Saul v Fielding (2015).

Patrick is a member of FOIL’s Motor Sector Focus Team and the Rules Special Interest Group.
