Bruce was called to the Bar by Gray’s Inn in 1992 and in recent years has developed a predominantly High Court litigation practice. He is currently being led by Ian Mill QC in a complex and substantial commercial claim against Universal Music and is also Senior Counsel in Lloyd v Kruger which concerns allegations of misrepresentation in intellectual property within a cross collateralisation of companies. Recently, Bruce was successfully led by Mark Vanhegan QC in a claim for copyright infringement against the band ‘The Prodigy’.
Bruce is well known for his common sense approach to case strategy and has the ability to make highly complex cases fall into simple issues. As an advocate, he is robust and effective always keeping the interests of his client paramount. Generally speaking, he will accept instructions in most commercial and chancery claims with a special interest in issues concerning media law. Non contentious work also features in his general practice and he is Of Counsel to a number of record companies and publishers. Work of this nature generally involves drafting of recording and publishing agreements. He is also happy to accept instructions under the Bar Public Access rules.
He is a member of the International Bar Association, Anguilla Bar Association and Associate member of the Connecticut Bar Association.
