Senior risk management consultant

Paul is a solicitor and senior risk management consultant.

After a period in general practice he moved into solicitors' professional indemnity, joining the Solicitors Indemnity Fund in 1991 as a claims handler. He joined Travelers in 2010 as a member of the Risk Management Team.

Like his colleague Charles Attwell, Paul works alongside underwriters, claim colleagues and others within Travelers, providing risk management guidance and information both internally and externally. His work with customers includes visits, presentations and discussions with law firms to address their risk exposures and report on claim trends.

There is growing demand to find better ways to manage and mitigate the ever-changing risks to law firms. The increasing amount of data analysis and other insights provided by Travelers is highly valued by firms.

See the Travelers website for topical articles from Paul and others on issues affecting law firms.
