What can Liam do for you?

Liam is a professional indemnity insurance and commercial disputes litigator. He specialises in defending claims against accountants, financial advisers, insurance brokers, solicitors and technology companies. He has a fast growing D&O (commercial disputes) practice and is regularly instructed to advise clients on insurance coverage issues. Liam is an experienced lawyer who always keeps his client's objectives in sight.

Supporting your ambitions

A career highlight so far was defending a professional adviser against a highly significant number of claims alleged to be worth in excess of £50 million. The values alone had the potential to bring an end to the client's business. At the conclusion of the matter, when the claims had been resolved, it was particularly pleasing to receive feedback that Liam had helped his clients to "navigate a difficult path in a highly contentions and complex multi-party action, which could easily have got out of hand to the detriment of all parties".

What do others say?

Liam has "a razor-sharp mind and is an incisive litigator who is particularly skilled at spotting his opponent's weak points" (Legal 500, 2018) and is “thorough, exceptionally bright, on the ball and has great judgment” (2019).

Described by clients as "completely on the money; resourceful, insightful" and "Professional, but very personable at the same time"

What else should you know?

Liam joined the firm in 2008 when the firm extended its insurance practice into Manchester and Leeds. He is now a partner in our Leeds office where he leads our Insurance Broker practice.  He also heads up our financial claims practice in Leeds and Manchester.
