The Lord Chancellor has appointed David Marshall as a solicitor member of the Civil Procedure Rule Committee (CPRC) for 3 years commencing 11 May 2020.
Appointments and reappointments to the CPRC comply with the Governance Code on Public Appointments and are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.
The CPRC is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Ministry of Justice. The Committee was established under the Civil Procedure Act 1997 to make rules of court for the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the County Court. The Civil Procedure Rules set out the practice and procedure to be followed.
David has been with Anthony Gold Solicitors since 1985 where he started as trainee solicitor. He is currently the managing partner. His specialism is serious personal injury cases, particularly brain and psychiatric injury. He was an assessor to Lord Justice Jackson’s supplemental review on fixed recoverable costs, and vice-chair of the Civil Justice Council’s working groups on noise-related hearing loss and on lower value clinical negligence claims.
David is also a member, and past chair, of the Law Society’s Civil Justice Committee.
