"I deal with a wide range of claims and related issues. I am often the first point of contact when solicitors or handlers ring Toppings for advice. I enjoy acting as a sounding board for clients and non-clients alike, and take at least two or three such calls every day. We are invariably able give them help and advice and they appreciate the fact that they can talk to an expert without “feeling awkward” about it."
