Nick Sutton | DWF


Nick is a civil and commercial litigation lawyer with front-line experience in both pursuing and defending claims with six-figure reserves and above, primarily arising out of insurance-related claims.

His broad disputes-based practice includes:

  • Employer’s and Public Liability
  • Health and Safety Law
  • Occupational Health, Disease and Stress 
  • Commercial and Contractual Disputes
  • Commercial Recoveries
  • Insurance Coverage and Indemnity
  • Data Protection
  • Product liability
  • Sale of Goods & Services 
  • Consumer Protection
  • Employment Law and Equality Act

Nick is personable, approachable and calm in his dealings with clients and opponents alike, whilst always focusing on his client’s primary needs and objectives. He takes a commercial and pragmatic approach to litigation and considers the ‘bigger picture’ rather than getting distracted by subsidiary, and often more costly, issues between the parties in order to achieve the best outcome for his clients.

“Nick was seconded to [our business] for approximately six months to support the Contract Risk Management process where we advise and guide the business development teams on ways in which they can avoid, mitigate or be fairly rewarded for risks which arise in the course of the provision of services to our clients.  Nick quickly adapted his style to match the corporate culture and rapidly grew into the process.  His advice was well judged and pragmatic.  Nick also used the secondment as an opportunity to really get to know the main part of [the business] which he is supporting today with his expertise on defending insurance claims.  This has proven to be very effective as Nick is comfortable with the culture of [the business] and with the way in which he is able to navigate his way through our organisation in a manner which fits nicely with our corporate culture.” Insurance Manager, DWF Client

"[We] were first introduced to Nick Sutton back in 2013 at the start of our business. Since then Nick has been an excellent and constant source for legal advice.  In the early stages of our development Nick came along and delivered good comprehensive training to our managerial teams and as our caseload has aged and litigation has ensued Nick has constantly delivered on the cases assigned to him. Advice given by Nick is always clear, concise, informed and most importantly fair and reasonable.  We are delighted to have an excellent working relationship with Nick – long may this continue."  Insurance Manager, DWF Client
