Roger Jones


‘Dan Brooks, Stuart Hill and Roger Jones all have a great passion for their area of expertise which is helping policyholders against insurers. They all have firsthand experience previously working for insurers which gives them an edge over other solicitors who don’t have that experience.’

‘Wynterhill are an ambitious young firm with real expertise in coverage matters. All of their team have come from the insurance side, having trained/qualified/practised in leading panel law firms. They are therefore the archetypal gamekeepers turned poachers.’

‘Dan Brooks is a standout. He is very measured and sensible in his approach, and does not take ‘silly’ points. That way, the points he does make are hard-hitting and he gets good results. He is well known and respected in the London insurance market, which is an accolade given that he routinely acts against insurers.’

‘Very approachable, give clear advice, and don’t try and complicate the issues.’

‘There are very few law firms who specialise in acting for the insured as opposed to insurers. Wynterhill are the standout practice specialising in this area. They have focused on recruiting staff and consultants who are leaders in their field and cover all the various aspects of insurance law.’

‘Dan Brooks stands out as without doubt one of the leading policyholder insurance lawyers in the UK with an impeccable record on insurance disputes. There is no one better to have in your corner.’

‘Roger Jones has a keen eye for detail and thinking outside the box to come up with answers that others miss.’

‘Stuart Hill is our key partner contact and has been a huge help on many things, from client disputes with insurers to internal technical training requirements and advice on our own D&O/PI queries’
