I am a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute. Over the years, I have worked for both insurance companies and solicitors and have extensive experience in handling claims against all the main professions, including, architects, engineers, design and construct firms, surveyors, estate agents, solicitors, accountants, insurance brokers, financial advisers, media and IT firms, management consultants and emerging professions.

My team has been appointed by over 20 different insurers, to whom we provide a claims services either to supplement the insurers own resources, or as their sole claims service provider. We were one of the first independent claims outsource firms and continue to be at the leading edge, in terms of our systems and approach to resolving claims cost effectively.

We have considerable statistical and management information, which assists insurers when underwriting risks. We work with insurers and brokers to help develop the insurance product and we are able to provide significant added value services. Our work is conducted electronically using a system to which our clients have access and we work to a range of delegated authorities.

Additionally, my team provides claims services to Insurers underwriting Irish domiciled firms.
