My Expertise

My role involves anticipating and advising on changes affecting the claims handling landscape, and identifying how those changes impact both on our insurance clients, and on our internal processes and products.

Read more about me

I am also a partner within the Occupational Health and Casualty Team acting on behalf of insurers, adjusters and self insureds in the handling of employers' liability and public liability claims for injuries caused by accidents or diseases.

I also specialise in costs issues and represented the defendants in the leading case on the significance of costs estimates heard before the Court of Appeal, Leigh v. Michelin Tyre plc, which directly led to the strengthened provisions on costs estimates found in the Costs Practice Direction and which was also influential on the recent further costs budgeting reforms introduced as part of the Jackson reforms of civil litigation costs and procedure.
