Boris was a senior equity partner at defendant insurance practice BLM solicitors before leaving in 2012 to establish BC Legal.

Boris qualified as a solicitor and joined BLM in October 1998. He was made a partner in BLM’s London occupational disease team in 2000 and jointly headed the team for 12 years.

Boris has specialised exclusively in occupational disease claims throughout his 24-year career as a solicitor and has handled hundreds of such claims for a variety of insurer, corporate, local authority, NHS Trust and defendant clients.

He has run in excess of 70 claims to full trial, including cases to the Court of Appeal and two cases to the Supreme Court - Majrowski v Guys & St Thomas’ NHS Trust [2006 UKHL 34], a claim relating to the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, and Baker v Quantum Clothing Group Ltd & Ors [2011 UKSC 17], which concerned NIHL claims. Both claims are leading judgments in occupational disease litigation.
