Work Department

Insurance (professional indemnity).


Neil has a wide experience of acting for insurers, both in the company market and at Lloyds, in professional indemnity claims. His areas of specialism are insurance brokers and construction professionals (from main D and B contractors through to a wide range of associated consultants). Recent instructions involve complex high profile claims of significant value (in excess of £10m) relating to both brokers and also main contractors. Neil also has extensive experience in presenting on risk management in these sectors and providing added value service to clients, both professional and insurer. He has developed around him a team that is a ‘go to’ point of reference for brokers on all aspects of their profession and has worked with both sectors at driving professional standards and minimising risk.
