Our team of dispute resolution lawyers has extensive experience acting on disputes and contentious issues both for and against insurers. We have substantial knowledge of a wide variety of sector related issues and regularly advise on matters concerning coverage disputes, policy interpretations and constructions, contractual and warranty claims as between the insured and the insurer, material non-disclosures and late notifications and IT and data protection issues. We also advise on reinsurance disputes and claims under the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Act 1930.
We deal with complaints made to the Financial Ombudsman Service and with claims pursued through the High Courts of England & Wales. We often settle disputes through the use of mediation.
We also sit on a number of insurer panels pursuant to which we are regularly instructed to deal with media and intellectual property disputes and also with claims under legal expenses policies (including property litigation, clinical negligence and commercial disputes).
