  • Profile
  • I am head of our Insurance team and a partner in the firm.

    I joined Bevan Brittan LLP in 1999 and have over 25 years’ experience of advising insurers, private sector companies and public sector organisations on insurance and risk transfer issues.

    I handle a wide range of liability claims for both insurers and for self-insured organisations. These range from major property damage claims through to high-value personal injury cases. I also advise on disputes between insurers and their insureds relating to insurance policy wording and coverage. In addition, I advise a range of health, PHI and life insurers on issues arising on claims and policy interpretation and coverage.

    My work also involves acting for local authorities in respect of highway claims.

    I have extensive experience of dealing with the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) on behalf of insurer clients in the context of policy disputes that have been referred to the FOS.

    Seminars

    I regularly conduct client training on insurance law matters to both insurers and insured parties.

Clients describe him as "excellent at grasping the issues quickly and finding workable solutions". They appreciate his strong work ethic and "understanding of time and budget constraints".
