Conor Macaire Duncan

Trainee Solicitor


+44 (0)330 0452254


Conor is a final-seat trainee solicitor in our London office. For his fourth seat, Conor is in the Digital and Sourcing team in London, working with both public and private sector clients on a variety of complex commercial, sourcing and technology contracts. He spent both his second and third seat in our Construction team and then on full-time secondment to Mace Group (working in an in-house capacity), respectively, gaining experience in both contentious and non-contentious construction matters concerning professional negligence disputes, litigation and adjudications as well as front-end contract reviews and advisory work on construction industry standard form contracts. For his first seat, Conor worked in our Commercial Dispute Resolution team on a broad range of general commercial disputes across both the private and public sector. 

Prior to joining Browne Jacobson, Conor worked as both a litigation paralegal and knowledge management paralegal at an international law firm, gaining substantial experience producing legal research, external publications and sector specific end products for clients across numerous specialisms, including insurance, cyber and data protection, AI, climate change, Covid-19 and other emerging risks.

His experience with climate-related research led to his contributing towards a University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) report named ‘Risk Sharing in the Climate Emergency’, which was deliberated on at COP26. 

Conor also has experience in drafting model clauses having led a team at The Chancery Lane Project (TCLP) Insurance Hackathon to draft a model clause named Nemo's Clause. Nemo’s Clause encompasses a set of clauses that can be embedded into a parametric insurance policy, in turn incentivising insured parties to facilitate the rapid restoration of coral reefs after catastrophic weather events. Nemo's Clause was later reviewed in depth and published by TCLP to coincide with COP26.
