I qualified in September 2005 and joined Mills & Reeve in August 2008. I am a litigator in our London insurance team and I specialise in defending claims brought against professionals, acting on behalf of insurers as well as their professional insureds.
I have represented a wide range of professionals including insurance brokers, construction professionals, loss adjusters, dentists, optometrists, cosmetic surgeons and solicitors. I have particular expertise in defending claims against solicitors arising from their conduct of personal injury or clinical negligence actions.
Supporting my clients' objectives
I have recently returned to the office, having completed a 12-month secondment working as a professional indemnity claims adjuster with one of our insurer clients. This has been an interesting and rewarding experience. With a focus on handling claims against solicitors, insurance brokers, and independent financial advisers, I have further developed my skills, knowledge and experience in these areas. In addition, the secondment has enabled me to develop a wider perspective, providing significant and invaluable experience of the professional indemnity insurance market, and an enhanced understanding of the pressures facing our insurer clients on a day to day basis.
What do others say?
A very common thing we hear is how approachable and friendly our lawyers are. We are also admired for our ambition and speed of growth. Clients also like that we are part of a large firm so they can draw on a wide range of services such as real estate, tax and construction. Another plus our clients mention is that, although we are based around a London hub, we are a truly national practice and can act for insurers across the UK.
