How can we help you?


Our market-leading policy coverage and indemnity team deals with all aspects of coverage work, including advising on compliance with claims conditions, non-disclosure and misrepresentation, suspensive conditions, disputes as to quantum/average and reinstatement, subrogation, litigated coverage disputes, regulatory investigations (including Financial Ombudsman Service) and mis-selling claims, as well as strategic advice on forthcoming developments.

Recoveries over £100k

We support insurers and corporates in handling volume and value property subrogated recoveries. Our cost effective market leading product, streamlines processes through bespoke case management systems and the use of alternative dispute resolution and/or litigation where appropriate. We handle all types of property recoveries from relatively modest household claims, to multimillion pound global market corporate claims.

LLP Global

Many insurers now trade in the global market, to meet this need we have invested in a global subrogation network. Recoveries are crucial to the cash flow of any business, and foreign jurisdiction recoveries can be seen as too much hassle, or too costly to pursue. We have developed an International Legal Network and funding model that makes international recoveries commercially viable, so that money is returned to your business.
