Construction and Engineering Professionals

What we do

We have significant specialist expertise in handling construction professional indemnity claims. Acting for key market players, our dedicated teams have broad experience ranging from handling the very high value, more complicated cases through to large numbers of more standard claims, where a proactive, decisive and cost-effective strategy is essential.

Our large team has strength and depth at all levels and deals with national and regional based disputes, receiving instructions on complex, technically- challenging multi-party claims against architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers, design and build contractors and specialist sub- contractors.

What we are known for

As well as high value matters we have the versatility and flexibility within our teams to deal cost effectively with lower value (although often equally complex) construction claims. Experience shows that an early technical overview and analysis and determination of strategy can provide insurers with an early resolution of matters so as to limit costs escalation.

Our focus on claims of a professional indemnity nature means that we are insurance as well as construction lawyers, and are equipped to advise on coverage and to manage the tensions and relations between insurers, brokers and insureds throughout the life of the claims.

Detailed elements of our services

We handle claims across the range of:

  • Design & Construction
  • Architects, Engineers and Quantity Surveyors
  • Regulatory Risk
