Michael Appleby

Experience

  • I qualified with BLM in 2004 and was promoted to associate in the professional indemnity team in April 2009.
  • I specialise in defending claims against a wide range of professionals, including solicitors, brokers, surveyors, architects, engineers and accountants.
  • My work has also included litigating and defending claims involving property-related damage including insurance policy advice.
  • I have a wealth of experience in claims handling and currently handle claims for insurers under a delegated authority scheme for claims worth up to £100,000.
  • I recognise the importance of maintaining the relationship between the insurer and their insured and the necessity to provide both practical and commercial advice.
