Steven joined the bar in 2011 having previously qualified as a Solicitor in 2005.
Steven has undertaken fraudulent insurance claims work for a number of years, almost exclusively on behalf of Defendants, and is well versed with recent developments and market trends.
He is often instructed at an early stage of proceedings by insurers when fraud or/or misrepresentation is alleged, and has a particular specialism in defending fraudulent credit hire claims, especially those involving taxi claims, where he has recently defended a number of very large claims. In addition, he specialises in, and particularly enjoys, road traffic accident cases involving “Low Velocity Impact” allegations. Steven’s knowledge of the area, gained over many years, and attention to detail make him particularly suited to this area of work.
This includes cases involving alleged low velocity impact, phantom passenger claims, and deliberately induced actions. Steven prefers, where possible, get involved in these cases at an early stage to determine the validity of the evidence and advise accordingly. He drafts Defence’s on behalf of client’s on an almost daily basis.
