What can David do for you?

David is a professional indemnity and policy coverage specialist. His practice is focussed on advising lawyers, accountants and financial professionals and their insurers on defending and resolving claims. Working in the highly regarded national insurance team, David actively leads the defence of major claims and pieces of litigation. He also advises insurers on policy coverage disputes and dishonesty investigations.  

Supporting your ambitions

One of David's recent cases involved leading the defence of multi-million pound claims in fraud and negligence against a law firm in the High Court. The case was intense: e-disclosure of 100,000s documents; over 20 hearings, claimants and witnesses in different jurisdictions and a client who faced bankruptcy if the defence failed.  Collaborating closely with Mills & Reeve's specialist real estate and commercial teams as well as it's best friend law firms in three different jurisdictions, David's team was able to provide the clients with a complete service on all the complex legal issues and negotiate a fantastic outcome.
