Who are we?

We have a market leading casualty team. Our experience means we are able to tailor the right solution for our customers, working in strategic partnership to deliver expert legal services. We provide seamless services either as standalone subject experts or as part of a wider DAC Beachcroft multidisciplinary team.

We take pride in our ability to deliver complex bespoke solutions in response to unusual and crisis situations as well as in our ability to handle ‘ordinary needs in extraordinary ways’.

Our strengths lie within the following abilities:

  • Breadth of market knowledge, quality, strategic insight and expertise: Our thorough understanding of the businesses we work for, means that we are market leading and innovative on our volume proposition.
  • Trusted Advisors: Many of our Partners and lawyers hold “Trusted Advisor” status with a wide range of clients. This comes from both our experience and expertise in the market but also through how we build relationships with our clients and their customer and partners.
  • Market Insight: The size of our claims portfolio gives us an unrivalled view of the market, which we can use to analyse and compare any individual client’s performance against the market average as visible to us. We are particularly well versed in the use of data analytic tools and consistently produce Know Your Opponent strategies across our Casualty Injury services.
  • Policy Holder Service: We are market leading in the service we provide to our clients’ customers including dedicated customer teams, training, access to 24/7 legal helplines, use of technology, attendance at seminars and events and risk management and advisory services.
