My Expertise

I have lead some of the largest liability and quantum cases in the UK insurance market and am categorised as one of the country’s leading insurance practitioners in the independent directories. I have built and grown 3 major insurance liability law firms and teams.

Read more about me

I have led a number of the key High Court and Appeal Court cases in this area of litigation, over the last 20 years. I was the first defendant solicitor to create an in-house medical rehabilitation team and provide specialist training to fellow solicitors on key personal injury issues as well as to insurers and reinsurers.

Much of my work is international and I have advised on many large loss injury cases for French and Spanish insurers as well as for UK insurers relating to accidents in those jurisdictions. Further afield, I am currently acting for insurers in Peru, in relation to a helicopter accident with multiple fatalities.

I am listed as one of only two star performers, nationally, in the Chambers & Partners guide to UK Lawyers for Defendant Personal Injury. I have, for many years, been ranked in the top category for my work.
