Who's Who Legal UK Bar - Professional Negligence - Juniors

Nick has a broad commercial chancery practice with particular emphasis on commercial litigation, the law of trusts and real property, banking, financial and mortgage related disputes, insurance claims, professional negligence and civil fraud. He is described in the directories as “exceptionally bright”, “tactically astute”, “very easy to work with” and “great with clients.”

Nick is an experienced trial advocate with a reputation for his able legal analysis. He is comfortable tackling complex points of law, both in writing and by way of submission, and is often instructed by solicitors, insurers and private clients for his commercial, client-friendly approach.

Nick is described as a “go to” junior for banking, mortgage and property related work. He has appeared in a number of leading cases, including Scott v Southern Pacific Mortgages Limited in the Supreme Court and Mortgage Express v Lambert in the Court of Appeal, and is a contributor to Cousins, The Law of Mortgages (fourth edition).

Nick has considerable experience of professional liability claims in the UK and offshore. He has acted in claims involving lawyers, trust companies and trustees, valuers and surveyors, construction professionals and engineers, agents, brokers, financial professionals, and management companies.

He is regularly instructed to act in insurance disputes and property damage claims, including claims involving coverage disputes (policy interpretation, non-disclosure, fraud, misrepresentation and FSMA/ICOB) as well as recovery actions and claims following thefts and damage to property (including fires and floods).

Nick is also instructed in claims arising from breaches of trust (including claims seeking to recover trust assets) and claims against trustees, both in the UK and offshore.

WWL says: Nicholas Broomfield is “ferociously bright as well as very hard-working", effuse sources who note his “ability to get to the heart of the matter very quickly".
