Ross specialises in professional liability and Directors & Officers (D&O) insurance disputes.
He has over 25 years’ experience advising clients across a range of sectors including providing coverage advice and defending claims against accountants, barristers, corporate service providers, insurance brokers and solicitors. His key clients include Bar Mutual Indemnity Fund and Markel.
Ross’ particular expertise involves complex, high-value professional negligence claims, often where hard-fought professional reputations are at stake or an off-shore element is involved. Ross' D&O practice is focused on providing coverage advice and the monitoring of complex litigation often centred around offshore jurisdictions such as Cyprus, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
Relevant experience includes:
- Advising the London Market in relation to a £100million negligence claim against an offshore professional trustee. The claim was successfully settled after two days of mediation saving the insurance tower multi-millions of pounds on the expected outcome.
- Representing a boutique West End law firm in a US$100 million claim arising from the solicitors’ inadvertent involvement in an offshore Ponzi scheme.
- Defending a major National law firm in a substantial claim relating to advice provided in a dispute involving a Premier League Football Club.
Ross is the regular lawyer attendee at the monthly Professional Indemnity Forum meetings of market professional indemnity underwriters held under the auspices of the IUA.
