Insurance

Our specialist insurance team includes Lee Hills and Michael Mulcare, who all have a wealth of experience in resolving disputes, whether in the courts or mediation.

Drawing on our considerable expertise, we aim to deliver balanced, rational and realistic advice both before and after the issue of Court proceedings.

We have pro-active claims handling philosophy and work closely with clients to resolve disputes proportionately with speed and cost in mind, whilst understanding the specific case objectives and adhering to service level requirements.

We are instructed to defend a broad range of matters, such as fatal accidents, complex personal injury claims, holiday and travel insurance, product, employer and public liability claims, as well as disputes arising from other risks. In addition, we frequently advise on general coverage issues.

In the event of a fatality, we offer full advice and support throughout the Inquest process and can arrange representation at Pre Inquest Reviews and at the Inquest.

In the professional indemnity field, we act both for and against a broad range of professionals, including solicitors, accountants, surveyors, barristers and construction professionals.

We can also provide guidance and training which can be used in clients' claims departments to help minimise the costs of defending claims and to deal with current awareness in the field of defendant litigation.

We offer a fast and efficient, high quality service to Insurers and Defendant clients, whether as panel solicitors or instructed off panel. (If you wish to instruct us rather than a panel firm then we are happy to contact your insurer on your behalf).

ALL AT SEA

During the holiday time, many people may be sailing on cross channel ferries across to Europe or perhaps even going on cruises. Although we hope that that it’s all “plain sailing”, what International Laws would come into play if there was an accident whilst at sea? The starting point is the... Read More

Disclosing Surveillance

There are times when a defendant receives valuable video surveillance footage of a claimant late in the proceedings. How can it then be introduced as evidence? The starting point is that a party has a continuing duty of disclosure to the other under CPR Part 31.11 which only concludes when proceedings... Read More

Freedom to choose your own solicitor?

Introduction If you have an insurance policy which offers legal expenses cover, it will probably insist that the insurers’ own panel solicitors are instructed in the event that you have a claim. However, although this may be convenient and appropriate in a simple low value claim, such as a car accident... Read More
