Insurance Disputes

Insurance makes the business world go round. Most of the time, it is a confidence-inspiring safety net. But, when the worst happens, it can become the focus of significant disputes – whether involving an insurer, a broker or a business directly.

Our team of specialist insurance lawyers will work with you to resolve the issue in the most cost-effective and commercially astute way possible. This could involve taking action to find an alternative to litigation or, if court action is required, representing you with clarity, strength and conviction.

We have expertise ranging from small claims up to multi-million pound cases and act for major UK and European insurers and brokers, as well as businesses and individuals. We are experienced in all areas of insurance litigation including defending personal injury and other liability claims as well as dealing with complaints before the Financial Ombudsman Service. Whatever you are up against, we will take a practical, responsive, hands-on approach – firmly focused on solving your problem as quickly as possible.
