We understand that stakeholders across the insurance market require specialist expertise, often across jurisdictions, and the ability to apply this sector experience to resolve disputes effectively.
Most companies around the world use insurance as a means of effective risk transfer for their business. From traditional policies such as property damage and business interruption, directors and officers (D&O) liability, professional indemnity, and public and product liability, to newer and more bespoke products such as cyber, credit and political risk and warranty and indemnity (W&I) insurances, we can help you.
We work with corporate policyholders, brokers and insurance and reinsurance companies to provide strategic legal advice often on complex, high profile insurance and reinsurance disputes and achieve excellent outcomes that demonstrate real client value.
Assisting with major claims is our core expertise, including advice on coverage, claim project management, claims advocacy to secure appropriate settlement of the claim using the full range of dispute resolution procedures including litigation, arbitration and all the forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
