We represent the interests of many leading professional indemnity insurers across the broadest range of professional liability.
DAC Beachcroft Dublin offers a comprehensive dispute resolution service at the highest possible level. We work with insurers, key brokers and insureds in risk assessment and improvement. Our team deals exclusively with professional indemnity disputes and has considerable experience in dealing with claims across all professions. Our specialist claims handling service enables us to offer a comprehensive professional indemnity service.
It is fundamental to every part of our service to be pragmatic and proactive. Each case management strategy is geared towards anticipating and preventing problems before they become major issues. We work with all parties to find solutions through compromise, mediation or alternative dispute resolution, rather than litigation. Where litigation is unavoidable, we will minimise the impact.
We are acutely aware of the reputational and financial impact professional negligence claims can have and we offer pragmatic and focused solutions specifically tailored to the needs of our clients and the claims they face. The result is a rigorous approach to helping insurers manage their money, legal budgets and reserves.
We strive to develop close, long-term working relationships with our clients, their key partners and insureds through dedicated client relationship partners, personal service and highly interfaced IT systems. In building and maintaining these relationships we aim to deliver the best possible service in the sector.
