Chris Neill

 Head of Litigation Management

Christopher received his LLB from Kingston University before going on to complete the LPC at the University of Law. A Senior Associate at PGMBM, he specialises in corporate accountability and group actions.

Joining the firm in 2019, his primary focus was to support the firm’s groundbreaking Fundão Dam Litigation. The 2015 collapse resulted in Brazil’s worst ever environmental disaster, with BHP now facing a $5bn claim for damages. He also leads a number of PGMBM’s other high-profile cases.

An experienced litigator, Christopher has a wealth of experience acting for claimants in group and multi-party litigation, as well as complex commercial, product liability, clinical negligence and personal injury disputes. During the early stages of his career, he successfully managed a team specialising in pursuing irregularity claims against financial institutions arising from the mis-selling of Payment Protection Insurance and other financial products – an endeavour which recovered millions of pounds for his clients.

Christopher’s formidable commercial instincts are second to none and he is relentless in the pursuit of his client’s interests. He has a reputation for consistently forging strong stakeholder relationships and prides himself on being someone that his clients can rely on. Having drawn high levels of praise from a variety of sources, he was shortlisted for ‘Rising Star Award’ at the Modern Claims Awards 2017.
