Insurance and Reinsurance Disputes

Our work covers a range of sectors, including construction, property, manufacturing, product liability and professional indemnity.

We have experience of all types of insurance policies including PI, PL, D&O, E&O, product liability and CAR insurance policies and are well placed to provide sound commercial cost-effective advice, in particular to insured and reinsureds dealing with large complex coverage disputes with their insurers and reinsurers.

Our Experience

    • Acting on behalf of Volker Fitzpatrick contractors providing insurance coverage advice in relation to a very large construction dispute relating to a wine warehouse where the sums claimed were in excess of £150m. The issues involved were complex and involved several different types of insurers and various layers of cover.
    • Advising a large UK construction company who were the main contractors on a state of the art chemistry lab at a university which was damaged by fire prior to completion.
    • Acting for insurers with regard to a dispute with a well known catalogue company involving the highly topical and much publicised mis-selling of PPI by an intermediary.
    • Acting on behalf of a group of independent financial advisers in respect of various FOS investigations for claims made against them. We assisted with the underlying defence of the claims and dealt with the coverage issues in respect of their professional indemnity insurance.
