Insurance disputes

Insurance is everywhere. Vehicle owners are required to take out car insurance covering liability for personal injury or property damage.

Homeowners have house and contents insurance to protect their valuable assets from loss or damage. Businesses must have employer’s liability cover to protect them from claims against employees.

Claims against insurance policies are everyday occurrences and disputes arising as a result of these are just as common.

We have the experience and resources to deal with insurance claims, disputes and related litigation within the UK and abroad.

We offer a range of funding options and would be happy to discuss these with you.

We can also assist with defending claims.

Kelvin is recognised in Chambers (2017), who state that he has a very strong reputation for his work defending complex and high-value personal injury claims - with clients describing him as "very thorough, dedicated and knowledgeable."

Chambers (2017) also states that Bethany Blamire is frequently instructed on claims with international elements. Sources say that "she's just really efficient and very good" and "has experience beyond her years - her decisions are like that of a senior partner."

Legal 500 (2016) states Kelvin Farmaner’s team at Trethowans LLP is 'excellent and progressive' and stands out for its 'clear and strategic advice to foreign insurers.' Kelvin is recommended as a 'robust but realistic negotiator who can be relied upon to provide a constructive and analytical approach.'
