I suppose it is good to know who is writing this stuff though as the Twitter feed on the right doesn’t do a very good job of disguising it, perhaps this page isn’t needed. If the Twitter hint is inadequate though, my name is Nick Hanning.
I am a Chartered Legal Executive Advocate working as a consultant undertaking casework with Anthony Gold in London and Dutton Gregory LLP (the latter following the merger of what began as Reynolds Williams and later became RWPS Law) as well providing legal practice consultancy through DG Legal.
For the last 15 years or so I have specialised in occupational stress claims predominantly for the targets of bullying and/or harassment at work.
The interest in this area of work goes back to a case which came to trial in 2001 where Andrew Buchan and I secured substantial damages for Jeffery Long in his claim against Mercury Communications. I have continued to deal with similar cases ever since including representing the Claimant in Majrowski v Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust.
The nature of these cases is that they frequently overlap with employment issues meaning my practice is spread evenly across personal injury (both common law and Protection from Harassment Act claims) and employment jurisdictions.
I regularly assist Claimants with their claims for remedy both preparing the Schedules of Loss and also undertaking advocacy where needed. In 2011 I represented the Claimant in securing what is thought to be the largest ever award of damages in the Employment Tribunal, some £4.5 million.
I also regularly lecture for the At Work Partnership on legal and related issues affecting occupational health.
