More about Christopher

Chris is an Associate in the Aerospace team based in London, having qualified in 2018. His practice covers a broad range of aviation-related work, both contentious and non-contentious.

Chris acts for airlines, product manufacturers and insurers, managing commercial disputes as well as fatal accident/injury and property damage claims. He also provides regulatory advice to air carriers in relation to passenger rights, and has experience drafting commercial agreements.

On the non-contentious-side, Chris has extensive experience in both the aviation and insurance industries, having been embedded with an airline to coordinate its crisis response to an aviation accident, and seconded to a major insurer client in London as an in-house claims adjuster.

Chris speaks French to an advanced level.
