What can Ben do for you?

Ben is an experienced lawyer in Manchester who specialises in advising how to manage and successfully resolve professional indemnity, construction and insurance disputes. Focussed on advising clients operating in the construction sector, including contractors, architects, engineers and other consultants, Ben also advises insurance brokers, solicitors and directors and officers' policyholders in complex and high value disputes.

Supporting your ambitions

Ben acted for an architect who was being blamed for alleged defects in a multi-million pound project. The claim involved several parties and Ben and his team  had to review extensive documentation in a short period of time and obtain expert input. Ben managed his team and the expert to guide his client through a series of complex allegations to present a detailed response which explained why his client had not been negligent or the cause of the alleged defects. The claim has not been pursued.

What do others say?

Having resolved a complex multi-party construction dispute on very favourable terms, the client said: “Ben gets my prize for absolute star of the year for his sublime handling of a very difficult claim in a way that ensured that my claims manager did not hand in her notice!”. His insured client added: “Your consistency and clarity held it all together.”

What else should you know?

Ben supports Liverpool Football Club. His own football boots have long since been hung up and his fitness activities now involve running around after his young children, plus some golf and cycling when time and weather permit.
