Ken  practises principally in the commercial and professional indemnity fields, with an emphasis  on insurance.

He is experienced in property, business interruption and liability claims in both commercial, and domestic spheres, and familiar with general, personal accident/illness and life policy drafting and interpretation, including the application of exclusion clauses, issues of non-disclosure and misrepresentation and the impact of fraud at policy formation and in a claims context.

He has considerable experience in subrogated recovery proceedings, particularly those involving technical issues of engineering, fire causation and the professional responsibilities of accountants, investment advisors and those in the building trade.

Between August 2015 and June 2016, based in New Orleans, he volunteered for the Capital Post-Conviction Project of Louisiana, assisting U.S. attorneys in the review of death sentences imposed by the courts of that State.  That statutory review process and its related U.S. Federal habeas corpus jurisdiction is essentially concerned to examine the exercise and uphold the entitlement of those accused of capital crimes to their rights under Louisiana and Federal constitutions.  Ken’s work for the office since his return to Melbourne is ongoing.

He was a solicitor with Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper) from 1984, and a member of that firm from 1991 until he came to the  Bar

 

From 1/07/2008: Professional Standards Act 2003 [Vic] “Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation.”
