Position

Described by Chambers UK as “an amazing courtroom presence” who is “completely bulletproof”, Bob is recognised as a leader of the Bar in Professional Negligence, Insurance and Property Damage. Heading the Professional Negligence Group at 2 Temple Gardens, he is an authoritative advocate with huge experience of indemnification and other insurance issues.  His reputation is for an informal hands on style, and robust advocacy, while an amiable and relaxed manner belies a capacity for meticulous attention to the detail of complex cases, and, when necessary ferocious cross-examination. He works for and against accountants, solicitors, valuers and surveyors, as well as construction industry professionals, especially in cases about the allocation of responsibility within multi-disciplinary teams. Bob’s background is in insurance law with long experience of subrogated recoveries in cases involving fire, flood and other catastrophic events, policy construction questions and repudiation for fraud. He retains a special interest in life and critical illness issues, and is often counsel of choice for insurers and reinsurers interested in these risks. Bob’s impressive record of appearances in reported cases, many of them landmark Court of Appeal authorities in his areas of specialisation, attest to the depth and width of his experience, and the success which he enjoys as a top-rated Queen’s Counsel.
