Very approachable and good to work with… provides sound advice that leaves no stone unturned.”
Adam has vast experience of property damage litigation, having been in involved in dozens of substantial cases over a long number of years.
He often acts for large insurers in subrogated claims and is extremely well versed in the relevant commercial considerations at play in such cases.
Adam has notable experience of the following property damage claims:
- Contribution and indemnity claims
- Defective and/or negligent works
- Water damage
- Fire damage
- Latent defects
- Tree roots
- Damage caused in the context of tenancies
In addition Adam has significant experience of bringing high value business interruption claims on behalf of companies who have suffered losses as a consequence of property damage (often in the context of commercial tenancies).
He has helped to steer countless property damage cases from the initial advice/prospects stage, through drafting pleadings to successful settlements of up to, and over, six-figures. In one particularly memorable multi-faceted commercial fire damage case (in which an adjacent business tenant negligently started a fire but where the relevant landlord was also implicated owing to potentially deficient fire-proofing between the tenanted premises) Adam negotiated a circa quarter of a million pound settlement at a large multi-party mediation in central London.
