We have specialist expertise in the insurance market as our lawyers have acted for major insurers and insureds over the last 20 years. We have niche expertise and are resolutely independent.

Our lawyers are experienced in advising upon insurance regulation (including with regard to InsurTech) and the development and drafting of several suites of insurance and reinsurance policies, including trade credit, professional indemnity, contractor policies, directors’ and officers’ liability, employers and public liability and contingency policies.

We have handled coverage claims, including bringing and defending proceedings, ranging from thousands of pounds through to over $20 million. We have advised on and pursued subrogation claims.

We have extensive experience of handling professional negligence claims, including claims against brokers, solicitors, barristers, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and financial intermediaries.

We advise companies on their insurance coverage requirements in relation to corporate governance, corporate transactions and commercial contracts as well as regulatory and compliance requirements for regulated entities.
