Aaron Pulford (Pupil)
Aaron is undertaking a pupillage under the supervision of Ian McCubbin.
Aaron was called to the Bar in 2008 and since then he has worked for several leading national and multi-national law firms, as an Advocate and latterly as a Professional Support Lawyer.
Aaron’s practice and experience includes a wide range of complex and high value EL/PL claims, serious-injury road traffic accidents, industrial disease claims (including the whole ambit of short tail and long tail cases) and actions against the police and blue light services.
He has been involved and had significant input in cases involving:
- Pro bono work acting for Claimants in matters relating to housing, benefits and personal injury;
- Personal injury claims against high-profile individuals;
- High-value personal injury claims involving personality change and traumatic brain injuries;
- Personal injury claims involving complex commercial disputes regarding contractual indemnities and contribution claims;
- Product liability resulting in disease, such as defective hip joints resulting in blood disorders and allegations of deafness from new technology;
- Emerging risk claims, such as chemical exposure and acoustic shock in a large group litigation;
- Claims for harassment, sexual misconduct and work-place stress;
- Environmental damage claims, one involving a multi-million-pound oil spill;
- An appeal on the need to restore companies to perfect service (Joddrell v. Peaktone);

During his time as a Professional Support Lawyer Aaron was the technical expert for a multinational firm across 11 offices, specialising in industrial disease. Aaron also co-wrote several chapters of Berrymans' Personal Injury and Motor Claims Cases 15th Edition.
Aaron has extensive experience acting for blue-chip insurers, companies, manufacturers and privately paying individuals at interlocutory hearings such as CCMCs, applications for summary judgment, pre-action disclosure applications, DWP Benefits certificate appeal hearings and infant settlement approvals. Aaron is especially experienced at drafting and providing written and oral advice.
Aaron acts for both claimants and defendants and is happy to undertake claims on a conditional fee basis when appropriate.
Due to Aaron’s significant experience gained prior to commencing pupillage he has dispensation from the Bar Standard Board to undertake a sixth month pupillage instead of the usual twelve month requirement.
Aaron is always happy to discuss matters before the receipt of instructions.
In his spare time Aaron enjoys reading, cycling (in a casual way), rowing (in an even more casual way) and in an attempt in inject some culture into his life occasionally goes to the theatre. Aaron is learning to play the violin. When Aaron isn’t doing any that he can usually be found in his local independent ale house with friends.
