Technology, Media & IP

What we do

From our experience of working with insurers in this area we understand that:

  • Early focussed advice often assists with forming successful resolution strategies
  • Changing attitudes towards the subject matter of the dispute is usually key to achieving an early resolution
  • Appealing to the commercial realities of the situation is likely to be more effective than the provision of academic legal advice
  • More involved and complex matters demand the co-operation of a team of individuals representing all parties – insureds, insurers and their lawyers
  • The sheer volume of electronic and hardcopy documents can undermine effective in-house case management
  • Lawyers who speak and understand the insured's technical language are vital to achieving a cost-effective and quick outcome

What we are known for

Having a clear strategy helps claims handlers and the insured to understand what objective each is working towards and how it is best achieved. We offer support with:

  • A helpline facility so that you can speak to us promptly without unexpected bills
  • Flexibility, within a range of funding options, to find the right structure for
  • Sophisticated technological solutions for data storage and analysis
  • A speedy strategic review to get you and your insured on the right track from day one
