INSURANCE LITIGATION

EXAMPLES OF WORK

  • We acted for a tied financial advisor in High Court proceedings brought against him and a multi-national insurer in relation to a dispute concerning a £500,000 claim made under a critical illness insurance policy taken out by one of his clients. The insurer had declined cover on the basis, amongst other things, that the claimant had deliberately and grossly exaggerated a disability in pursuance of the claim for critical illness benefit. The case settled on very beneficial terms for our client.
  • We acted for a Malaysian insurer in connection with a dispute with its reinsurers listed in the Commercial Court in London. The proceedings concerned a claim under a policy of reinsurance written by the reinsurers and involved arguments as to the proper construction of the reinsurance policy, arguments as to the law on when a reinsurer is bound by decisions of a foreign court to which he was not party and arguments as to limitation and to estoppel.
