“I founded Fenchurch Law so that policyholders would be able to access insurance disputes solicitors with the same specialist focus and market knowledge as are available to insurers. We work tirelessly to create an environment where every member of the team can reach their full potential and is committed to the firm’s cause of levelling the playing field for policyholders.”

Our Senior Partner, David, is one of a handful of lawyers recommended by both Chambers and the Legal 500 for representing policyholders in insurance coverage disputes. He is individually ranked in Band 1 of Chambers & Partners for representing policyholders in insurance disputes and is ranked as a Leading Individual in the UK in that field by Legal 500. Legal 500 says that he is “always thinking one step ahead” and describes him as “a very bright and capable litigator with real tactical nous” and “an incredibly smart and experienced insurance lawyer who is not afraid to go toe-to-toe with anyone in the industry”. Chambers says “David is an absolutely fantastic strategic thinker” and that “he is right at the top of his game and exceptional at what he does.

Before founding Fenchurch Law in 2010, David was a Partner in a boutique law firm that specialised in advising insurers in relation to insurance coverage issues and professional indemnity claims.

His work involves representing policyholders in relation to claims under Construction All Risks, Design & Build Professional Indemnity, Latent Defects and Third Party Liability policies. He regularly deals with disputes involving “damage vs defect” issues, “design vs workmanship” issues, and the proper interpretation of ‘DE’ and ‘LEG’ defects exclusions.

He also advises policyholders and brokers with regard to cyber insurance wordings and disputes, including identifying gaps and overlaps between cyber and non-cyber insurance programmes and advising in relation to ‘silent cyber’ issues. David represented the policyholder in one of the first major ‘silent cyber’ insurance claims in the London market.
