Our Commercial & Regulatory disputes team are well versed in advising and representing policyholder in relation to insurance coverage on a standalone basis or within the context of an existing commercial dispute or regulatory investigation.
Our experience extends to claims on D&O, professional indemnity, public liability, business interruption (including infectious disease and prevention of access clauses) and other specialist policies on either a claims made or occurring basis.
Recent illustrative examples of our work include advising on: PI coverage relating to FCA investigation and past business review; D&O coverage relating to insolvency and unfair prejudice claims; business interruption coverage relating to the cancellation or postponement of international sporting and hospitality events; public liability arising from a high profile disaster; specialist coverage relating to the interruption of large scale multi-use property development sites or employee / contractor fatalities arising from health and safety failures; and pursuing negligence claims against brokers.
We are able to advise on your policy’s key terms relating to notification, excess, aggregation, limits of indemnity, extensions of cover, conduct of claims, subrogation, proof of loss submissions and dispute resolution including via arbitration. The strength and depth of our litigation offering also means that we can provide strategic advice where the resolution of your insurance claim dovetails with the conduct of any ancillary commercial or corporate dispute and regulatory investigation.
We pride ourselves on being approachable and focused on the most pragmatic way to mitigate your business or financial risks and losses during a time of crisis.
We are recognised and ranked in Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for the specialist work that we do in this field.
