What can I do for you?

I am an insurance litigator and specialise in defending professional negligence claims on behalf of insurers and their insureds. I work for a range of different professionals and defend high value and complex claims on behalf of lawyers, technology and life sciences companies, insurance brokers and other financial professionals. The matters with which I deal are often sensitive, can involve multiple parties and generally involve ADR (particularly mediation) at some stage. 

Supporting my clients’ objectives

My clients come to me because I give them clear advice about what their exposure looks like in the claims they face and I “get off the fence” when giving my views on the strategy for dealing with those claims. As a result they know whether a claim is one to defend or one to settle and if it’s one to settle, they know on what terms. Either way, they know that I will fight hard to secure them the best possible outcome.

What do others say?

Legal 500 says that I am "an outstanding lawyer who excels at providing concise, practical and prompt advice." Chambers UK says that I am “admired by clients for [my] ‘detailed, precise’ advice and ‘pleasant manner’”. I think that reflects the general attitude of our whole team, as acknowledged by Legal 500, which comments that we are "very consistent and provide a high level of service".

Chambers also recognises that our "high calibre London practice attracts praise and enjoys a growing reputation". Our clients like the fact that we’re part of a large firm. They can draw on a wide range of services such as real estate, tax and construction. We’re a truly national practice and can and do act for insurers and insureds across the UK.

“Clients return to this firm time and again for its regional reach and the ‘experience, dedication and tenacity’ of the lawyers.” – Chambers UK
