Ray commands a high level of market recognition as a veteran practitioner in this space, accumulating an enviable body of expertise in the process. Ray operates across the full advisory, contentious, regulatory and transactional spectrum. He draws extensive praise as "a really good practitioner who knows his stuff," while clients note that he is "very approachable and personable in addition to being technically very strong" and "instils confidence in his clients that he and his team have everything under control."

Ray is also known for being "actively engaged in the changing landscape of the regulatory environment" and "The firm also responds positively to the commercial pressures facing in-house counsel, providing specialised guidance rather than pure advocacy."  His team is known for "their rich experience and expertise in insurance law, their broad international network and their approachable, client-centric ways of working."

Ray has extensive experience in both non-contentious and contentious insurance matters, advising across the full spectrum of insurance issues ranging from major transactions, distribution, compliance and complex reinsurance structures to some of Australia's largest insurance and reinsurance disputes.  Ray's advice is regularly sought by domestic and international clients. Insurers (life and general), reinsurers, banks, government and major local and foreign corporations appreciate Ray's strong grasp of the technical, legal and commercial aspects of every matter, and how he applies this knowledge to develop the most appropriate strategy.

Ray works closely with clients to achieve commercial solutions and is passionate about developing creative solutions that help clients realise their desired outcomes. Ray's thought leadership is recognised by his appointment as the Asia-Pacific Chair of the AIDA (global insurance law association) financial lines working party and various FSC committees. He is a member of the Australian Insurance Law Association (committee member), Australian Professional Indemnity Group and the Reinsurance Discussion Group.
