We represent professionals and their insurers in a range of disciplines including construction (engineers, architects and surveyors), medical professionals, accountants, solicitors, architects, financial advisers and others. We have an intimate knowledge of their respective industries and the sectors within which these professionals operate.  That knowledge combined with our scale and long-standing history in the market means we can deliver expertise that makes a real difference for our clients and we pro-actively drive cases to conclusion.

Our work in this area includes:

  • Dispute resolution - litigation, arbitration, conciliation and mediation
  • Policy interpretation advice addressing issues such as notification, non-disclosure, coverage of types of loss, aggregation, claims co-operation, limitation, exclusions
  • Claims recovery, subrogation, contribution, avoidance, cancellation and fraudulent claims investigation/handling experience

With a number of partners who are experienced mediators and conciliators we lead the way in alternative dispute resolution.  Our investment in state-of-the-art litigation support systems enables us to manage cases efficiently and effectively.
