As Head of Civil Litigation Paul has extensive experience of dispute resolution focusing in particular on professional negligence (including clinical negligence) claims. He also handles contentious trust and probate cases and Inheritance Act claims acting for both Claimants and Defendants, trustees, executors and beneficiaries.
He is a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers’ Association and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. He is also an ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) Group Accredited Mediator. Paul has, in the past, appeared on local radio as a "legal eagle" responding to listeners' queries.
His clients find his attention to detail and his determination to get the right result very reassuring. As one client put it “I am very impressed with his thoroughness” and another, “a very professional service delivered in a very personal way”.
His most high profile case was a medical negligence claim in which he recovered nearly £5m for a claimant with cerebral palsy. His parents had originally been wrongly advised by another solicitor that the claim was statute barred and that he could not recover anything. As a result of Paul spotting a deficiency in the standard settlement terms produced by the NHS’s lawyers changes were made to the settlement terms in over a hundred other cases.
Passing his Law Society finals with First Class Honours Paul originally trained at Hart Brown. Having spent two years sharpening up his advocacy skills at another firm he returned to Hart Brown becoming a partner and then Head of the Civil Litigation Department. He was also for many years the IT partner.
Paul regularly receives praise from his clients: "The whole affair was dealt with speedily and with the utmost expertise. I would heartily recommend Hart Brown to anyone."
“With Hart Brown I had complete success with my claim against my former solicitor. At all stages I had the confidence to proceed based on the clear analysis and communication of my position. I have no hesitation in recommending Hart Brown and particularly Paul Grimwood”.
