I act for insurers and reinsurers handling complex casualty and property coverage claims. I also act for insurers in respect of medical device and pharmaceutical claims, offshore and onshore energy risks, property losses, D&O liabilities and, for professional indemnity insurers, defending claims against insurance brokers.
I have over 30 years’ experience acting for insurers and reinsurers, handling complex casualty and property claims. In particular I have a specialism in advising on policy coverage issues for both primary and excess layer insurers in respect of national and international risks. I am a CEDR accredited mediator and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
My work spans the jurisdictions, in particular USA, Germany and India. I am an associate member of the American Bar Association, acting for the London insurance market in respect of coverage disputes involving US losses. I am currently representing insurers in a $200 million coverage dispute in Tennessee and advising on losses in a number of US states. I am also advising insurers on coverage disputes arising from the supply of products from India. I am a member of the British German Jurists Association and act for both German and London market insurers in respect of global losses. I am currently advising on a contaminated products claim following a recall in Germany.
I am the co-author of the chapter on Product Liability in the latest edition of Insurance Disputes.
Legal 500 (2014) ranks me as a leading individual in the Insurance/Reinsurance Litigation category and states I am a "focused technical lawyer and a pleasure to do business with".
