insurance coverage disputes and policy interpretation

corporate-checking-contract

When coverage disputes arise they can bring with them reputational and commercial risks. Our specialist team of coverage lawyers focus on providing clients with an early accurate assessment of the likely outcome so that only the right battles are fought.

We take a pragmatic and commercial approach to coverage investigations and advise in the context of our clients’ claims philosophies and their regulatory responsibilities.

We have considerable experience of advising insurers on policy interpretation issues that impact upon large volumes of claims across entire books of business. Our lawyers work closely with our specialist claims analysts to map potential exposure in a user friendly way so that our clients’ senior management teams can take informed decisions about strategy and reserves.
