About

I specialise in commercial dispute resolution representing insureds and have varied cross-border and advisory experience with a particular focus on insurance coverage disputes in the finance sector.

I specialise in trade finance and insurance related disputes, which are frequently large-scale, highly complex and involve multiple parties. In addition to my contentious experience, I advise on the interpretation of insurance policies, with a particular focus on those utilised by credit institutions and other firms as credit risk mitigation for capital adequacy purposes.

I am dual-qualified in England and Wales and New York State and am a member of LexisPSL’s Banking & Finance Next Generation Board.

Outside of work, I am a keen traveller and love to experience the local food.
