Construction and Engineering Disputes
Our team provides specialist advice to secure commercial, strategic solutions for re/insurers across the London and international markets. Our market- leading expertise means we are regularly appointed to advise on some of the most high-profile, high-value, and complex losses in the market, whilst offering a reliable and comprehensive service across the whole claims range.
Our global reach and breadth of experience enables us to service the full spectrum of construction and engineering claims (including renewables), providing clear advice in relation to domestic and international first party and third party claims under annual and project CAR/EAR, DSU, (A)ICoW and PL cover, as well as various operational and bespoke wordings.
Our expertise spans the full underwriting and claims lifecycle, including reviewing and drafting policy wordings, advising on coverage, defending liability claims, and pursuing subrogated recoveries. We have significant experience of litigation, arbitration (all major global arbitral institutions), and all forms of ADR, both domestically and internationally.
Our practical, multi-dimensional approach to the technical and legal issues that arise, as well as our global network of adjuster and expert relationships, enables us to identify and address issues promptly. Our approach is derived from both thorough analysis and commercial consideration, which ensures claims are resolved swiftly and effectively.
