Clerk Details


Kim Wilson is a civil law barrister and probationary tenant, specialising in personal injury and police law matters.

He joined 3PB in October 2023, having completed a common law pupillage at another large chambers in Birmingham. Kim has a vast array of experience well beyond his year of call, with particular expertise across military and policing activities, giving him an in-depth knowledge of these systems and a true eye for detail.

Kim is a former Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in UK airborne forces, who was deployed in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He worked in various roles including IED search and mentoring of local police in team leader roles.

Kim’s extensive pre-Bar career means he is a problem solver who delivers empathy and excellent commercial awareness to his clients. This is prominent in his positive client feedback.

Kim was regularly instructed by a large police authority client and various local councils during his pupillage, meaning he has a true understanding of the needs of these publicly-funded organisations.

His recent caseload has seen him undertake a range of personal injury and negligence claims, with regular appearances in road traffic collision related trials, Stage 3 and infant approval hearings. He has recently appeared in the County Court on numerous Multi-Track claims, which has included gaining extensive disclosure from the HSE for a catastrophic injury case. He is used to acting for both Claimants and Defendants in such cases, with clients reporting that Kim gives sensible, pragmatic advice and representation throughout.

As an LL.B student, Kim began doing pro bono work in the Employment Tribunal and County Court in support of fellow military veterans. His tenacity and impressive knowledge of employment law resulted in him gaining a large settlement for a disability discrimination claimant, despite the respondent rail operator being represented by a law firm partner.

Kim has also experienced the full range of Court Martial hearings in his pupillage, including a trial before the newly legislated six-member Court Martial board, and a three-day summary Appeals Court case, which attracted significant public interest. He worked as a junior to King’s Counsel and a Senior Junior advocate, highly experienced in Court Martial cases, providing Kim with excellent experience in the jurisdiction and his wider practice. Kim understands the military's unique employment, disciplinary and injury protocols and practices and associated military terminology, but he is also acutely aware of the career and life consequences faced by Service personnel in court cases.

Kim continues to be active with pro bono work, volunteering for Advocate since pupillage; earning him their “Pupil Pledge.” He has successfully assisted dozens of people, mostly fellow veterans. He is particularly passionate about assisting the Military community and supporting 3PB’s commitment to the Armed Forces as an Armed Forces Covenant signatory.

Kim is qualified to accept instructions directly from members of the public and professional clients under the Direct Public Access scheme. He is one of the few members of the Bar authorised by the Bar Standards Board to conduct litigation.
