Why choose our Insurance and Re-insurance Disputes lawyers?Our insurance and reinsurance disputes team contains sector specialists and technical experts. We work closely with our non-contentious insurance lawyers as well as our colleagues in corporate, finance, tax, regulatory and data protection to deliver a complete service to our clients.
We assist insured, insurer, reinsurer and intermediary clients (including brokers, third party administrators and financial institutions) with managing and resolving disputes that arise in what is an increasingly complicated insurance market.
We advise on a range of risk management/avoidance issues, corporate governance, liability exposure, intellectual property and regulatory issues as well as contentious matters, crisis management, pre-litigation planning and litigation.
Our approach is to agree and implement strategies that resolve
disputes efficiently and preserve our clients' commercial objectives. We handle
purely domestic matters as well as complex multi-party and cross-border
litigation involving multiple claims in different jurisdictions.
