Kiran is the Global Head of Insurance and specialises in insurance coverage and subrogation work. His expertise spans a number of lines of insurance business, much of it with an international flavour.

Kiran advises clients in various classes of business on both contentious and non-contentious insurance and reinsurance matters. His clients are international in their nature, based predominantly in the London market, the US, Bermuda and Europe. Kiran’s primary focus is on property and liability insurance, reinsurance (and run-off claims), and specialty lines including contingency, bloodstock, accident and health and jeweler’s block/specie

Kiran also advises clients on non-contentious insurance and reinsurance issues, including policy wordings, binding authority agreements and also ART/ILS transactions. 

He is a member of leading insurance market associations, including the Insurance and Reinsurance Legacy Association (where Kiran is co-chair of the Education Committee), the Lloyd’s Market Association and the IUA Contingency Working Party.
