BSc (Hons) Qualified as a Solicitor in 1997
Prior to joining Harris Fowler solicitors Christian successfully represented one of the victims of the Potters Bar rail disaster and represented a client in respect of a claim against a high profile US rap star.
He joined Harris Fowler in 2012 and is currently acting on behalf of clients who have sustained injury from metal contamination following the failure of their metal-on-metal hip implant. His approach to these complex claims is to look at them under the Consumer Protection Act to see whether the implant constitutes a defective product. If it is then he pursues a claim against the manufacturer of the implant. Christian takes a robust approach to his investigations moving quickly to confirm the identity of the manufacturer of the hip component with the aim of helping his clients to make a swift recovery.
In addition to consumer product liability claims Christian Bryan has experience of claims under the Athens Convention for accidents at sea and the Montreal Convention for aviation accidents. He has a particular interest in claims involving accidents abroad, particularly road traffic accidents in Europe, often involving complex jurisdictional issues, under Rome II (The law applicable to non-contractual obligations).
Christian feels the most rewarding aspect of the job is the fact that no two days are the same and with each new day brings a different challenge.
