Profile & Experience

Iain Fraser is a consultant in Manchester with many years' experience of acting for solicitors on large complex claims and advising insurers on coverage issues.

Full Profile

I have acted exclusively for insurers for many years, acting primarily for solicitors on large and complex commercial, personal injury and property related claims, but also representing many other professions and advising insurers on coverage issues. 

I am accredited and experienced in mediation but, when necessary, have litigated successfully up to the Supreme Court, and have previously had cases in the House of Lords on three occasions and several in the Court of Appeal, including important decisions on issues of conflict and client confidentiality (Hilton v Barker Booth & Eastwood), service of proceedings (Barton v Wright Hassall), the assessment of the loss of the chance of success in litigation (Hanif v Middleweeks), and a case which changed the longstanding interpretation of the law on vicarious liability (Viasystems v Thermal Transfer).    

Experience
  • Acting for solicitors on substantial claim by international footballer
  • Acting for agricultural advisers on large claim relating to loss of EU subsidy involving cross-border jurisdiction issues and complex questions of causation and loss.
  • Dealing with multiple claims against a firm of solicitors one of whose partners stole large sums of money from vulnerable clients over a period of several years.
  • Representing insurers in a resulting coverage arbitration with four other insurers.
  • Acting for solicitors on a £26m claim by a major national house builder.
  • Acting for brokers on substantial fire claims.
