James is an Executive Adjuster who entered the insurance profession in 2000. During this time, he has been employed in a variety of technical roles for dedicated liability practices throughout the North West.
James current portfolio comprises a general mix of personal injury, construction risks, property damage, real estate and business interruption claims. He has expertise in multiple facets of insurance, particularly technical, high value adjusting but can also engage in bordereaux preparation, triangulation, client liaison, monitoring work-flow and act as a technical referral point for his colleagues and clients. During this time, he has dealt with a significant number of cases from “cradle to grave”, obtained witness statements, provided legal strategy guidance, assessed quantum, negotiated claims and provided insight on risk management issues. Of upmost importance to him is offering fair advice, reducing costs/exposure wherever possible and being receptive to the needs of my client.
