Mr Harrison’s non-contentious insurance practice focuses on financial lines and speciality insurance: in particular, directors and officers' (D&O) liability; professional indemnity; fidelity; and product liability insurance.
He has worked on high-profile D&O and professional negligence matters globally, including the Grant Thornton negligence litigation in Hong Kong; the Barings Bank collapse negligence action in London; and the London Metal Exchange aluminium cartel class action in the United States.
