Julian joined Stewarts in 2000 and was appointed a partner in 2002. He founded the International Injury department in 2007 and built it to become No.1 ranked in both Chambers and Legal 500.
In 2012 Julian was appointed the firm's Compliance Officer for Legal Practice. He heads KM & Compliance, which involves developing and implementing improvements to the legal services Stewarts provides to its all of its clients, including innovative cost and funding options.
Julian has a rare dual speciality of acting for clients who have sustained life-changing or fatal injuries in an international context. He has successfully recovered over £140m for clients injured in the UK and across the globe. In the latest edition of the world renowned legal directory, Chambers, Julian is the only lawyer acting for Claimants in International Personal Injury to be designated as a Star Individual.
Julian fought the case of Harding v Wealands up to the House of Lords, who agreed the assessment of damages for this Australian accident should be in accordance with English law. Not only did that lead to Mr Harding recovering £5.5m compensation for his spinal cord injury, it also set a precedent which helped countless others injured in accidents abroad to recover full compensation.
Recently work includes acting for the family of Jules Bianchi, who died nine months after suffering a severe brain injury during the Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix in 2014.
