Delegated authority claims resolution

Flexible, customer focused and technical excellence. Our delegated authority claims resolution service provides insurers with a flexible and scalable solution, without the need to commit large amounts of internal resource. Our claims handling team can be deployed on an ongoing basis, or as an overflow/surge provision for your own teams. We work to service standards and key performance indicators tailored to your requirements.

Our approach to claims handling consistently delivers excellent customer service without sacrificing efficiency, so our insurer clients know their customers will receive an outstanding service which delivers value for money.

We capture meaningful and tailored management information for our clients. We regularly use our clients’ case management systems to ensure seamless service provision.

Many of our experts have been seconded into clients’ businesses so have first-hand knowledge of what really matters to insurers.

Our claims handling teams are experienced in resolving claims across the following lines of business:

  • Professional indemnity (traditional and non-traditional professions)
  • D&O
  • Corporate liability
  • Employment practices liability
  • Intellectual property
  • Cyber and data
  • Business interruption
  • Public liability (third party property damage)
  • Public liability / employers’ liability (injury)

  • Tailored DA and non-DA schemes - available where your claims portfolio requires a more bespoke approach, such as where a corporate policyholder requires a dedicated contact or team, or where claims give rise to reputational issues (for example, professional indemnity claims).
  • Large loss, catastrophic injury and complex claims - dealt with by specialist teams with extensive litigation experience, and a deep knowledge of their clients’ priorities.
