At a time of rising costs, it is becoming more important than ever that you challenge insurance claims when there is reason to do so. Our expert insurance solicitors are here on hand to help with any query you may have.
Our Insurance Law Expertise
The insurance lawyers in our team offer breadth and depth of expertise in the field. In addition to handling insurance claims and litigation on your behalf, we also provide specialists in areas such as indemnity and policy and recovery claims who have the knowledge required to guide you to the best course of action.
Indemnity and policy
We have extensive experience in advising insurers on issues relating to indemnity and policy. Our experienced litigators act on your behalf in contentious and non-contentious indemnity and policy matters. This involves a detailed review of your policy, the circumstances of the claim and whether the policyholder complied with the policy conditions.
Our insurance dispute solicitors are able to offer guidance in situations where you are asked to deal with a claim that is not covered under the policy. Equally, we have represented many clients faced with circumstances where the policyholder has breached a condition of the policy or failed to disclose pertinent information.
Regardless of whether you are an insurer, intermediary or self-insured business, we will provide robust advice in the likelihood of successfully defending a recovery action or pursuing your outlay. Acting for a variety of clients, we have a reputation for being robust but fair, seeking compromise where appropriate or progressing legal proceedings.
We are experienced in handling a wide variety of recovery claims – from high value damages paid due to fire or floods, to damages to the property caused by motor accidents. Adapting to suit your requirements, we are also well-positioned to offer bespoke funding options which reduce the cost and risk to clients.
