Call: 2015


Daniel joined Chambers in October 2018 following the successful completion of his common law pupillage under the supervision of Matthew Farmer and Russell Pyne.

Daniel specialises in civil litigation. He is an experienced advocate, appearing in court daily. He deals with county court matters, advises on all stages of litigation and settles pleadings. He has been commended for his thoroughness, “easy manner” and “model” written work.

Personal Injury

Daniel has a busy personal injury practice which includes cases arising of RTAs and claims against employers and occupiers. He frequently deals with allegations of fundamental dishonesty on behalf of claimants and defendants.

  • Q v U (2023) – secured an award of damages for personal injury for C, where D alleged fundamental dishonesty. D relied upon a recording of an unsolicited call from D insurers, which, it contended, undermined the claim.
  • M v H (2023) – successfully defended a claim for personal injury and credit hire, the claim being struck out at trial on the basis that C’s foreign language witness statement was improperly constituted.
  • A v A (2023) – representing D in a claim arising out of an RTA, after scrutiny of C’s medical history under cross-examination, the court dismissed the claim for personal injury.
  • J v B (2023) – obtained dismissal of pedestrian’s personal injury claim, following cross examination of C, whose medical records and contemporaneous reports of the accident were inconsistent with his witness statement.
  • A v G & H (2023) – obtained the dismissal of C’s claim for personal injury brought by pedestrian against private hire driver.
  • V v T (2023) – advised on the merits of defending a trip and slip claim and represented D at trial. The claim was dismissed.
  • G v Q & H (2022) – settled documents for instructing solicitors and successfully resisted application by C to disapply limitation period. Obtained wasted costs order against C’s solicitors, subject to their showing just cause why the order should not take effect.
  • A v B (2019) – claim dismissed, obtained finding of fundamental dishonesty against C and disapplication of QOCS.

Credit Hire

Daniel regularly appears for both claimants and defendants in claims relating to credit hire agreements.

  • C v N (2023) – defended a claim for credit hire in which C recovered less than £400 of their £8,000 claim. D was awarded costs on the indemnity basis pursuant to CPR 27.14(2)(g).
  • M v H (2023) – recovered hire charges on behalf of C in full.
  • D v C (2018) – acted for D in a credit hire claim where liability was admitted and successfully argued that the measure of damages should be loss of profit. Consequently, quantum was reduced from £8,000 to £1,000.


Daniel represents both landlords and tenants in residential property disputes and has experience representing lenders in mortgage repossession claims.

Consumer law

Daniel regularly represents finance companies in relation to agreements regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. He frequently obtains summary judgment, dismissal of applications to set aside judgment and indemnity costs orders. He accepts instruction in Plevin cases.


Daniel is experienced in dealing with private children disputes and applications for injunctions under Part IV of the Family Law Act 1996.


Daniel obtained a First Class History degree from Exeter University and a Master’s degree from Oxford University. He received the Major Scholarship from Inner Temple for the GDL and BPTC. He gained a Very Competent grade on the BPTC and was called to the Bar in 2015.
