Neil Frankland is a dedicated professional indemnity lawyer at Mills & Reeve. His work involves helping professionals (and the insurers of professional risks) in defending claims made for compensation against them of all values — from £10,000 to £10m — and also policy advisory work.
He is recognised by the legal directories, and clients, as a leader in his field and specialises in acting on professional indemnity claims against brokers and construction professionals. Of particular significance in the last year, he has received increasing levels of instructions valued at more than several million pounds in connection with broker negligence claims, including failures leading to underinsurance (£6m), failure to understand a client’s business operation (£3m), and failure to identify correct insured/advise insurers of change of corporate entity (£3m).
In relation to construction claims, Frankland continues to lead Mills & Reeve’s development of construction-related insurance claims from the firm’s Birmingham office, including claims against M&E contractors, architects, surveyors, geotechnical engineers — all of a significant nature.
