'Since joining Barry Nilsson I have been lucky enough to be exposed to many aspects of insurance litigation. A particular interest for me now is dust related/silicosis claims, which are rapidly on the rise.'

'There are many reasons why I enjoy my work. Particular highlights are the diversity of the matters I act in, the exposure to new and complex issues and the relationships that have been formed with colleagues and clients. I also enjoy the evolving nature of litigation and having the opportunity to think and act creatively to achieve good outcomes for my clients with whom I have worked to establish an ongoing relationship, so that they know they can rely on my advice.'
