Who are we?

Property claims are as diverse as they are important to our insurer and corporate clients. Each of our products has key individuals, supported by specialist teams, who are able to provide commercial advice on their chosen area of legal expertise. Our strength in depth sets us apart from the competition in each product, which is supported by talented partners/solicitors.

Our London, international and regional offering allows us to offer solutions regardless of the value, jurisdiction and line of business. We have a fantastic, market leading reputation in our chosen areas of expertise. For example, our subrogation capability expands across all lines of business; property, motor, professional and financial lines and casualty contribution claims.

Both in the UK and internationally we are able to offer risk and reward funding models for our recovery products, transferring the financial risk to ourselves.
