‘I find professional indemnity fascinating. It is incredibly varied work. No two days are the same. Assisting claims managers is rewarding because they are not only knowledgeable but very pragmatic and commercially astute. I also enjoy the challenge of working with professionals to achieve good outcomes in often difficult circumstances.’
