Roger was called to the Bar by the Middle Temple in 1983. On completion of his pupillage at 2 Dr Johnson's Building he became a tenant in that set which moved out of the Temple in 1984 to new premises at 9 Gough Chambers.
Roger initially practised in general common law but for the last 20 years has practised exclusively in personal injury, fatal accident and clinical negligence claims. He has particular expertise in occupational disease claims and writes the chapter on Work Related Upper Limb Disorders for the loose-leaf publication "Occupational Illness Litigation".
Away from the law Roger enjoys live music, outdoor sports and attempting to tame his garden.
