Tim Hodgson was called to the Bar in 1991. He had previously completed his doctorate at Corpus Christi College Oxford and had worked as a lecturer at Manchester University. For approximately 11 years after coming to the Bar he continued to teach part time, acting as a lecturer and tutor in employment and business law at Manchester Metropolitan University, before he had to give this up due to pressure of work.
Although Tim undertakes a wide variety of common law work, his particular interests lie in the fields of personal injury, clinical negligence, housing (landlord and tenant) and employment law. He has considerable experience of work at all levels in these areas and is regularly instructed in high-value personal injury and employment claims and housing, clinical negligence, employment and personal injury actions where the issues are both complex and of legal importance. Specialist areas include, industrial disease, limitation issues, spinal injuries, discrimination, unfair dismissal and social housing issues.
Tim acts for both Claimant and Defendant and is instructed extensively by Local Authorities, Trusts 'RSLs' and Defendant Companies and organisations. He is recognised as an accomplished advocate who provides a prompt and high level of service. He continues to lecture and tutor on legal issues to a variety of practitioners undertaking legal, medical, employment and housing work.
Tim’s recreational interests include philosophy, theatre, literature and football and he retains a particular love of porridge which sustained him through his University years. If he had any leisure time he would like to sleep.
