Senior Associate (CILex)


+44 (0)121 237 4567


Paul is a senior associate within the complex and serious injury claims team. He is instructed by commercial insurance clients, advising them on a wide range of employers’ liability, public liability and motor claims that vary in complexity and value. These include head, spinal, orthopaedic, chronic pain, amputations, and fatal claims. 

Paul is specifically asked by his clients to undertake complex liability investigations, usually at an early stage of an accident or incident, such as serious and potentially life changing injuries sustained on construction sites, events/festivals etc. and in road traffic collisions. 

Technically well regarded and considered to be a trusted advisor to his clients, Paul’s approach to claims handling is pragmatic, commercially astute and collaborative, but always seeking to secure the very best results for his clients – often securing discontinuances, contributions and/or indemnities from other parties. 

Paul regularly provides training to his insurer clients’ claims teams. He has undertaken numerous secondments with his clients in order to integrate and align himself with their teams, claims values and claims processes.
