We have substantial expertise in acting for policy holders, insurers and brokers in respect of disputes that arise out of insurance and reinsurance policies and their placing.
The matters on which we act often arise out of a considerable or catastrophic loss leading to multiple streams of disputes that need to be handled in a strategic manner. Our expertise includes:
- Acting in insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes arising out property, business interruption or third party liability. Such claims often involve issues over non-disclosure/fair presentation and misrepresentation, as well as those arising out of the correct interpretation of policy wording.
- Acting on insured liability cases where there is partial insurance cover and where a contribution is sought from one or more insurers.
- Claims against brokers arising out of failed and insufficient insurance coverage.
- Disputes over the quantum of insurance coverage.
Our Partners have acted in several insurance disputes, including cases which have gone to trial and where there have been appeals to the Court of Appeal. We have also acted in insurance arbitrations. Often, however, insurance disputes are successfully resolved through negotiation, mediation or another form of alternative dispute resolution.
Currently, we are instructed in several insurance disputes arising out of the COVID-19 crisis, including disputes concerning business interruption claims, infectious diseases cover and denial of access.
