Before joining Wordley Partnership, I was a partner in a leading international insurance law firm for over 25 years and have worked in the insurance sector for more than 30 years.
My focus has been “hands on” dispute resolution, whether acting for insureds or (re)insurers, where early identification of the issues, the commercial imperatives, and workable strategies are key.
I have successfully handled numerous complex claims, advising on coverage and defence issues, in a wide range of insurance products, internationally and domestically, including most third party liability and specialist lines, as well as Trade Credit. I have particularly enjoyed working on broker and MGA related issues
Whilst I have handled cases in most dispute forums, I am happier if we can reach commercial solutions and help to maintain the business relationships, whether by negotiation or mediation, formal legal adjudication being the last resort.
