Bruno Gil specialises in personal injury and clinical negligence work. He offers the full range of advocacy, advisory and drafting services, representing both defendants and claimants.

Bruno regularly appears in the County and High Court for trials, interlocutory applications, CMCs and CCMCs.

With a BSc and MSc in biological sciences, Bruno has a good grasp of medical issues. He is increasingly instructed in claims involving complex injuries, including CRPS, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury and spinal injury.

He has recently been appointed to the Attorney General’s C Panel.

Further detail of Bruno’s work can be found under the relevant headings below.

Before coming to the Bar, Bruno enjoyed a successful career in management and operations for a global high-end restaurant group, allowing him to hone excellent client-care skills.

In addition, having previously worked as a paralegal for a claimant firm specialising in personal injury and clinical negligence (between law school and the commencement of pupillage), and having now been on secondment as in-house counsel within a large defendant firm, Bruno is particularly aware of the demands placed upon his professional client.

During his professional training (BPTC), Bruno won three national advocacy competitions. He attained a further prize in an international mediation tournament. Bruno was awarded the Lord Denning Scholarship and Lord Brougham Scholarship from Lincoln’s Inn.


“Well prepared and eloquent, Bruno is an exceptional all-round advocate who possesses the intelligence and flexibility to adapt a case to changing circumstances in court. In addition to his outstanding presentational skills, Bruno upholds an admirable level of client care and is adept at guiding individual claimants through the difficult and stressful tribunal process. Highly recommended.”
