Work Department

I am a leading insurance lawyer involved in cutting edge litigation. My expertise is in policy interpretation arising from mesothelioma claims, environmental litigation, product liability and construction cases, including a wide experience of group litigation cases.




In recent times, my work has focused on policy interpretation especially in connection with the still developing mesothelioma jurisprudence.
