Pump Court Chambers is delighted to announce that Henry Hawkesworth has joined Pump Court Chambers after successful completion of his third six pupillage following a period as a tenant in a leading set of common law chambers in the North East of England.
Called to the Bar in 2018, he has developed a mixed common law practice, regulary receiving instructions in both Civil and Family matters.
Within his Civil practice, he has a particular focus on Personal Injury, Property and general Commercial Litigation. He appears frequently in Fast Track trials, Stage 3 hearings and small claims involving credit hire, debt recovery, road traffic claims and liability under the Animals Act 1971.
He also has experience of interlocutory hearings and has dealt with applications for relief from sanctions, pre-action disclosure, and expert evidence on the Fast Track and Multi Track.
