Clyde & Co
Lee’s insurance and reinsurance work includes policy coverage advice, liability defence and assessment and wordings/policy structures.
His experience is focused on the industrial and professional sectors, in respect of both property (with an emphasis on business interruption) and liability covers; but also encompasses broad commercial litigation and insurance/reinsurance matters.
Most of his work has an international dimension and as well as advising on jurisdiction issues he has experience of dealing with disputes and claims around the world.
Lee has been involved in considering the impact of smart contracts, blockchain and related technologies since 2015, and has written a series of papers which cover the extensive possibilities of these technologies within the existing legal and regulatory framework. He is now recognised as a leader in this area and is regularly invited to speak at insurance and other industry conferences, and to contribute towards initiatives and other papers. Lee is currently instructed by clients seeking to utilise these emerging technologies on a number of projects to include payment-rail systems, parametric insurance and digital marketing initiatives. He is dedicated to finding innovative yet pragmatic ways for the new technologies to work within existing frameworks. Lee is a co-founder of Clyde Code, our smart contracts consultancy.
