Henry joined 2TG in 2010 following completion of pupillage.
Henry’s experience encompasses sale and supply of goods and services, credit hire litigation, a landmark ruling on assessment of damages for a ruined holiday, insurance claims, claimant and defendant personal injury and sports related work, as well as applications involving all aspects of civil procedure.
Prior to joining 2TG, Henry was signed to Sony/BMG as a recording artist and songwriter, touring extensively and playing alongside artists such as Radiohead and Beck. His already wide experience of the entertainment industry and of recording and publishing contracts in particular was valuable when he assisted during pupillage on X v Bon Jovi.
During pupillage Henry gained experience of a wide variety of general contractual disputes, including claims involving the sale and supply of goods and services and credit hire litigation.
He worked extensively on Milner v Carnival PLC  EWCA Civ 389 CA, a landmark Court of Appeal decision on the assessment of damages for a ruined holiday.
Henry has experience of insurance claims concerning policy interpretation, avoidance of cover for nondisclosure, misrepresentation and breach of notification clauses.
In 2010 Henry completed a placement with Clyde and Co, where he was involved in the disclosure process and drafted witness statements in relation to reinsurance claims arising out of the 9/11 attacks.
Henry has also given seminars, both to invited audiences in 2TG and in-house for solicitor clients on motor insurance, compulsory provisions under the RTA 1988 and recent developments in motor fraud.
Henry is increasingly instructed in motor claims with a fraud element, and regularly defends motor insurers against fraudulent claims.
Travel and Jurisdiction is a fast growing part of Henry's practice, alongside his general commercial and insurance work.
Henry has recently advised on issues relating to Italian, Irish and Romanian law. In addition to instructions in his own right, he also appeared with Alexander Layton QC and Marie-Louise Kinsler in Cox v Ergo Versicherung AG  EWHC 2806 (QB), a conflict of laws case that required two separate hearings in the Court of Appeal in May and June 2012. An application for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court is currently being prepared.
Henry has also given a seminar on claims involving the Montreal and Athens Conventions.
Henry has experience of both claimant and defendant personal injury work and regularly appears in final and interim County Court hearings.
He also has experience of claims involving the Motor Insurers’ Bureau and credit hire issues, as well as claims arising from road traffic accidents and package tour holidays.
Henry regularly appears in applications involving all aspects of civil procedure including applications for strike out, summary judgment, disclosure and stays.
In 2010 Henry assisted Sarah Vaughan Jones QC in Connah v Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust and Ors  EWHC 1727 (Admin) in which the court was asked to consider complex jurisdictional issues relating to its powers to order an inquest under the Coroners' Act 1988.
Henry is developing a busy property damage practice. He has advised on cases concerning property damage caused by fires, flooding, building work and subsidence. Henry also has experience of contribution claims between architects and construction companies relating to allegedly negligent repair work.
Henry has a fast-developing sports practice and acts for both Claimants and Defendants. He is particularly sought after in cases which give rise to jurisdictional or product liability disputes in a sports context.
