Paul Verrico

Leading lawyer in the field of safety and wellbeing

Paul Verrico is a Partner and experienced Solicitor-Advocate in our EHS team, specialising in representing both individuals and organisations in the Transport, Education and Local Government sectors.

Paul is one of the UK’s leading lawyers in the field of safety and wellbeing. For the last 15 years he has defended organisations and individuals following deaths at work, explosions and environmental disasters in courtrooms up and down the country.

Typical cases include defending: a manufacturing facility when hot oils caused an explosion in a food facility; an organisation when a power plant using farm waste exploded, spilling tonnes of slurry; an organisation when bomblets were badly demilitarised and a man sustained life changing injuries; an organisation when a waste fragmentiser exploded due to incorrect separation of waste streams; and a global equipment manufacturer at a lengthy inquest.

Paul conducts his own advocacy whenever possible. He is hugely in demand on the conference and after dinner circuit as a keynote speaker. Paul has been ranked in the top band of health and safety lawyers in the UK over the last decade.
