Roger Doulton M.A. (Oxon), F.R.S.A. is a CEDR qualified mediator (1993) and a retired solicitor. He also acts as an adviser for Citizens Advice.
Before his retirement (from the senior equity partnership at Clyde & Co), and for more than 25 years, he was recognised as one of the United Kingdom’s leading insurance and reinsurance litigators. He had the conduct of some of the industry’s largest and most complex cases and created and ran two of the country’s most successful commercial risk teams.
He handled or supervised literally hundreds of cases concerning insurance and reinsurance coverage and insurance fraud together with liability claims across most classes of business to include agriculture, bankers blanket bond, construction and engineering, credit risk, directors and officers, energy, employers liability, film finance, financial risk, healthcare, kidnap and ransom, life, medical negligence, motor, personal accident, personal injury, pharmaceutical, product liability, property and business interruption, professional indemnity, public liability, Warranties. He also handled some particularly prominent reinsurance disputes.
His work for Citizens Advice provides an entirely different perspective. He has assisted many clients in their claims against insurers and other professionals. And he has re-acquainted himself with the law of employment, landlord and tenant, family and consumer rights.
He has attended around a hundred mediations sometimes as mediator and sometimes as a participant.
