Julie has conducted claims arising out of fraud and dishonesty including associated recovery issues and has advised on coverage issues arising out of directors’ and officers’ and management liability policies.

She has a keen interest in the mediation process and resolving claims through alternative dispute resolution methods, having acted in numerous mediations for insurers and  other organisations.
