Giles Colin has a wide ranging practice, but is best known for his work in the fields of clinical negligence, discipline and regulation, personal injury and inquests (principally in healthcare matters appearing regularly on behalf of the Ambulance Service, PCT and Hospital Trusts, as well as representing the interests of doctors). He has been instructed directly by the General Medical Council to cross examine vulnerable witnesses where the doctor does not have legal representation. Giles has also given presentations in respect of Inquests where Coroners, healthcare professionals and lawyers were all present.
He was called to the Bar in 1994 and developed a practice almost exclusively in the criminal courts in South East England, before moving to London in 2000. This gave him valuable experience for witness actions and for all aspects of his practice today, but particularly disciplinary and regulatory work.View full profile »
