Alexander Macpherson

Call 2000

"He is a skilful and thorough cross-examiner. A phenomenally talented individual."
(Chambers & Partners, 2021)

Insurance & Reinsurance


Alex advises on and litigates all insurance-related disputes, including avoidance of cover (non-disclosure, fair presentation, notification, moral hazard etc); subrogated recovery claims; and issues of scope of cover.

He is currently instructed on coverage disputes involving variously: a catastrophic flood at a West London property, an arson attack on mobile plant, the negligent design of building cladding, and a fire caused to a fast food outlet.

In 2018 he was instructed to advise the owner of a property which had suffered a catastrophic fire in relation to a £5m claim for an indemnity from the property’s insurers. Following directions being given by the TCC, the claim was compromised at a mediation.
