I’m Dan, Head of Broking at LawSure.
I’ve been at the company since 2013 and have loved watching both the team and company grow. Especially since what we thrive off is helping people to purchase their dream homes.
I specialise in making traditionally uninsurable risks insurable. In fact, I hate the word “uninsurable”. I love to work through projects like this by recommending specific ways to alter policies and include certain stipulations to make the insurance viable for both our client and the insurer.
My background is in sales, but I prefer the depth of relationships in my role here at LawSure. Communication is the key. I make sure that I and the whole team understand the needs of each client thoroughly. Only then are we able to go about delivering the best possible solution for their needs and deliver on time.
I have recently been involved in putting together strategic scheme business on both the title and probate side for the slightly more unusual circumstances. I help lawyers and lenders streamline their process and make sure that the cover is tailored to their business model.
I am a big fan of “whodunit” series, films and books. Although I actually rarely guess who did it correctly, it keeps me on my toes and gripped to the end. I also love football. I used to play at a high level. In fact, I was lucky enough to travel all around Europe playing for my county.
When not at work or on the football pitch, I love to get my people-reading skills on at the poker table. I try to live by the words of St. Jerome, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”
I was awarded my Certificate at the Chartered Insurance Institute soon after joining LawSure, and am currently working to obtain a Diploma at the CII. For the second year, I was shortlisted for ‘Young Broker of the Year’ at the UK Broker Awards, and in 2021 received a ‘Highly Commended’ for my contribution. It’s great to receive this recognition.
