Who We Are

Founded in 1842 and merging with Edward Freeman in 1979, we are the oldest established name in loss assessing in the United Kingdom. We are a specialist niche practice deliberately limiting the work we handle. We provide individual expert advice and representation with a modern professional service that has won acclaim from clients around the world. We focus on the nuances of your claim not the administration of a target obsessed large corporation. Our extensive experience and expertise enables us to achieve the best outcomes for our Clients. Simply put, we believe that we are the best firm of loss assessors practising in the UK.

Our main Directors are:
