Doughty Street Chambers
Theo Huckle QC is the Counsel General for Wales.
He maintains his busy complex PI/Clinical, Public and common law practice with the agreement of the First Minister of Wales.
He is a Bencher of Lincoln's Inn and general editor of Division I of Butterworths' Personal Injury Litigation Service and contributor to Munkman on Employer's Liability and Occupational Illness Litigation. He wrote Butterworths' original practice manual on the new system for Periodical Payments.
Theo has a particular and broad ranging Appellate advocacy specialisation ranging from Personal Injury to Constitutional and Devolution law. In this he brings to bear very broad common law experience dating back to his early days as an advocate undertaking the range of common law work from Crime to Family to PI/Clinical to general Civil work. He was probably the last of the traditional senior junior heavy Defence crime/Plaintiff civil practitioners based in Cardiff, where he has always been based until his move to Doughty Street. From 2000 he concentrated on civil work, and increasingly PI/Clinical cases, where alongside a growing profile in Disease work culminating in the Baker v Quantum litigation, he also maintained a higher value Catastrophic Injuries and Clinical practice.
