Gideon has a busy practice spanning all areas of Chambers’ work including clinical negligence and personal injury, public and human rights law, inquests and public inquiries, and equality law.

Gideon is regularly instructed in clinical negligence and personal injury claims by both claimants and defendants in claims in the High Court and County Court. He has experience in high-value claims, complex causation arguments, issues of informed consent and Fatal Accidents Act claims. His experience stretches from GPs to surgery, stillbirths and birth injury, midwifery and nursing care, ophthalmology and dentistry. In addition to clinical negligence, Gideon is instructed in personal injury claims arising from accidents at work, employers’ liability claims and serious road traffic injuries.

Gideon often appears before Coroners in inquests relating to topics ranging from medical negligence, mental health issues, nursing care to road traffic accidents. He is currently instructed by the Coroner in the Inquests into the Birmingham Pub Bombings (1974).

Gideon is also developing a varied public law practice. He is currently instructed by HMRC in an appeal in relation to authorisation under the WOWGR legislative scheme in the First-Tier Tribunal. In addition to his work on the Inquests into the Birmingham Pub Bombings, Gideon has been instructed on immigration judicial review claims, unlawful detention, claims relating to discrimination in prisons and article 2, article 3 and article 8 matters. He is keen to expand his public law practice.

Gideon has a growing interest in equality law work. He has appeared for a bus company in a claim for disability discrimination and acted for a mother and child in the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal.

While the bedrock of his practice is civil litigation, Gideon has also developed a criminal law practice, prosecuting in the Magistrates’ Court and also appearing in the Crown Court.

Before coming to the Bar, Gideon obtained a First Class degree from Cambridge University where he read History, before achieving a distinction on the GDL.
