Marc Asquith*

Civil Litigation

Marc is hugely experienced in Low Velocity Impact (LVI) claims and road traffic claims wher fraud is an issue.  His industrial disease practice has included HAVS, NIHL and forms of asbestos-related disease.

He is a specialist in procedural matter and was Counsel for the defendant at first instance in Bennett v Compass Group UK and Ireland Ltd [2002].  Marc has regularly appeared before many of the North of England Designated Civil Judges, both on late and complex applications and appeals.

Marc also regularly appears in Coroners Courts throughout the UK.  His experience ranges from two-hour road traffic inquests, through two-day aviation fatality inquests, to multi-day jury inquests into fatalities involving the various health and social care authorities. 

Having led an in-house team (indeed Marc practised for a short time as a solicitor), he developed an exceptional costs awareness and experience.  He obtained one of the early strike-outs of a CFA and has substantial experience of detailed assessment hearings.

Marc's personal interest is recreational aviation.  He is a Law Society registered expert in such matters and his service as a member of a local authority give him particular insight into claims involving such issues.  He has a reputation for taking on cases which are not run of the mill.  Recently he successfully defended a prosecution for the disturbance of Great Crested Newts under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 and The Conservation (Natural Habitats etc) Regulations 1994 in the Magistrates Court.
