As for the suggestion that Colin Wynter (admirable as he is) single-handely drove forward the litigation, the truth is slightly more prosaic. CW was just one of a number of leaders on the so-called “Employers'” side, and was not ‘name-checked’ in any of the Supreme Court judgments, unlike Jeremy Stuart-Smith QC (one of 3 silks from 4 New Square who appeared on the appeals in the Supreme Court) and Michael Beloff QC. Other than Beloff and Stuart-Smith, Colin Edelman QC was the only other advocate name-checked by their lordships.

Reply Link Anonymous 29 March 2012 at 19:59 Colin Wynter cannot be blamed for the way that The Lawyer chose to report this. He was not on the “Employers” side. He acted for the Claimant side (Durham, Edwards and Fleming) i.e. the families of the men that died an unimaginably painful death due to their employers’ negligence in exposing them to asbestos. They don’t care whether CW was “name-checked” but they and the many thousands that will benefit from this judgement will be grateful to him and the rest of the legal teams that achieved this victory.
