Nick's Profile Picture

If you’ve met me you’ll know why this is an appropriate profile picture

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.

In my day job I am a Chartered Legal Executive Advocate and a partner with RWPS Law (formerly Reynolds Williams) in Poole where I specialise 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.

(that’s Andrew Buchan the Barrister from Cloisters not the actor; though oddly enough he, the actor that is, played the eponymous hero of Garrow’s Law. It’s a funny old world …)

I have continued to deal with similar cases ever since including having the excitement of a House of Lords case (and to win it too) 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. All of which means I will merrily comment on cases of all those types. Oh, and having once traded as a Costs Draftsman (as they used to be called), I may also sound off about costs too.

Besides the day job I also work to promote my fellow Chartered Legal Executives (I have been a CILEx Council Member since 2005) and am a Trustee of the CILEx Pro Bono Trust, the South West Legal Support Trust and Bournemouth & Poole Pro Bono.

All of which explains why Mrs H and Mr H junior do not have to put up with me too much.

      Dear Mr Hardy

      Many thanks for this. If you’d like to send details to my office email address nhanning@rwpslaw.co.uk I’ll be happy to take an initial look and indicate if it could be worth pursuing further without charge.

      With kind regards

      Nick Hanning
