It is Paul's specialist knowledge of the Latent Defects Insurance Market as well as the Building Control function which makes him uniquely placed to provide expert Claims Investigation / Arbitration, Surveying & Project Management Services with trouble-shooting abilities in identifying root cause defects, owing to his first-hand knowledge of the Zurich process and the technical standards expected and essentially, how buildings work.

In his spare time Paul is a keen golfer (time permitting, unfortunately not often enough) and also enjoys the odd glass of Rioja, with other interests being construction and cars.
