John O'Shea


  • I have over 25 years' experience in handling property-related insurance claims.
  • Previously I have held various senior roles within claims technical and managerial positions for a major insurer prior to qualification as a solicitor (2005).
  • My experience includes the role of senior liability adjuster for a major international firm of loss adjusters.
  • I advise insurers on policy coverage matters, the defence of liability claims and pursuing subrogated recoveries.
  • I advise insurers on all classes of (non-injury) property-related losses, including fire and flood, engineering and construction disputes and geotechnical claims, including subsidence.
  • I advise on policy coverage including the application of warranties, conditions and exclusion clauses, incorporation of terms and misrepresentation and non-disclosure.
  • I have considerable experience of claims arising out of construction work, ranging from disputes with local builders for negligent underpinning through to disputes arising under major construction projects.
  • My clients include major composite and property insurers, as well as the Lloyds & London Market.
