"They always crop up one side or another. They


Our team of specialist insurance and reinsurance lawyers are widely recognised as key players in insurance and reinsurance law.

Each partner in our practice has over 20 years experience in the insurance market, which means we fully understand the environment in which you operate and the issues that you face. We have a broad range in experience of acting on industry wide issues, such as WTC claims and the financial institution losses emerging from US corporate collapses.

The issues we deal with often result in complex legal advice and equally complex litigation and arbitration proceedings. Consequently, across the team there is substantial experience of major UK and international insurance and reinsurance dispute resolution procedures, across all classes of business.

We develop strong client relationships and understand that you want to avoid getting into litigation. By providing efficient, practical and early advice with alternative solutions, we can help you do this. We are advocates of, and regularly use, alternative dispute resolution methods including mediation, arbitration and negotiation.
