‘I love the detective work of being a lawyer. ’


  • I work with:
    Insurers IAG and Allianz.
  • Trends in my area:
    disputes related to the Motor Accidents Insurance Act 2017 are becoming a larger part of the work, taking over from the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999. The deterrence of fraudulent claims continues to be a focus.
  • I predict the next big thing will be:
    the incorporation of some of the online workarounds introduced to deal with COVID-19 into everyday work practices.
  • My proudest achievement:
    it’s always greatly satisfying to uncover evidence to support a suspicion you have that a claim may not be all it seems.
  • Outside work, you'll find me:
    spending time with my family, reading, cooking, rowing, and travelling.
  • If I wasn't a lawyer, I would be:
    a detective.
