Unique Qualifications

  • Active in the property insurance market: My principal business is to provide property underwriting audits on U.S. insurance companies on behalf of their Bermuda reinsurance partners. I have current knowledge of property market conditions and practices;

Expert Witness Experience
I added Expert Witness Consulting to my consulting practice in May of 2015, and have been selected as an expert in two cases:

 

  • Expert for the insurance company defendant in a case involving the duty of property loss control to advise the insured on the adequacy of flood limits. I submitted a report to the court. The case was settled after the first week of trial and prior to my testimony. 


  • Expert for the insurance company defendant in a case involving the duty of a surplus lines underwriter to assess the flood risk. I submitted my report to the court. The case was settled prior to the start of the trial.
