Business and Professional Risk

Position

Associate, Jude, defends a wide variety of professionals and has carved out a specialism dealing, particularly, in claims against solicitors, IFAs and estate agents. She has experience of a range of insurance coverage issues ranging from late notification, to material non disclosure, aggregation, and dishonesty. She is also well versed in the impact the various Minimum terms and Financial Ombudsman Service Rules can have on such issues and advises insurers accordingly. 

During her time at Browne Jacobson, Jude has been seconded to a large retail client and the Solicitors Regulation Authority Assigned Risks Pool. She therefore understands the pressures and issues relevant to a large privately owned retailer and on the other hand, has gained a valuable insight into the issues relevant to an insurer of last resort. In particular, Jude has built up a specialism in defending lender claims against solicitors and surveyors as well as other types of claims.

Jude continues to act for IFAs in claims brought under the Financial Ombudsman Services jurisdiction. She also acts for many estate agents in defending claims arising out of the Tenancy Deposit legislation, and personal injury claims brought by tenants of managed properties, in which she draws on the extensive experience of Browne Jacobson’s personal injury team
