Geoffrey Weddell
Geoffrey Weddell acts for the police in civil claims concerning misfeasance, false imprisonment and assault. He defends against claims for breaches of the Human Rights Act and the Equality Act, in relation to alleged discrimination.
Strengths: "You've got a job on your hands when he's the barrister on the other side. He's a very beguiling opponent and he'll get you on the ropes quickly. He has a great way of framing any point he needs to argue."
Recent work: Acted for Surrey Police at the inquest of Kimberley Ann Smith, which considered questions of inadequate mental health safeguarding contributing to her suicide.
