He qualified as a barrister in 1979 and then spent two years as a claims handler with the West of England P&I Club.  He then joined Holman, Fenwick Willan and spent five years in their Paris office followed by a further three years in London before joining Stephenson Harwood as a partner, where he spent three years working in the reinsurance area.
