Position

Tim has developed a significant practice acting for insurers, MGAs, brokers and intermediaries in relation to the drafting of insurance policies and providing advice on relation to the same. Tim has set up a team of five lawyers all specialising in policy drafting, in order to service the needs of the firm’s insurance clients.  The team provides an endorsement drafting service on a delegated authority basis, which drafted and signed off over 1,000 bespoke endorsements last year across a wide range of policy types.  Tim also sits as the only external lawyer on Hiscox’s Core Wordings Group, in which capacity he (or one of his team under his supervision) either drafts or provides a final review of almost all of Hiscox’s open market policies.  Tim also drafts and advises on wordings for other clients and intermediaries, including Brokerbility, Pen Underwriting (Arthur J Gallagher) and China Taiping. 

Tim recently advised Hiscox on the creation of its market-leading response to the Insurance Act. Tim also managed a team that was responsible for implementing changes necessitated by the Insurance Act to over 800 policies and 200 other documents, including Key Facts documents, proposal forms and policy summaries. 

During the past 12 months, Tim has led a team responsible for significantly updating nearly 50 open market wordings for Hiscox against extremely tight deadlines.

Tim has recently drafted a suite of marine freight, cargo and engineering wordings for Fiducia MGA, a recent entrant to the marine market.

Tim has also recently completed a major redraft of Pen Underwriting’s construction and CPA policy wordings.

Tim also advises a number of brokers and broker networks on insurance-law specific issues and is regarded by both Brokerbility and UNA Alliance as a ‘go to’ person for complicated queries.

In addition to policy drafting, Tim advises on insurance aspects arising from commercial and corporate transactions.
