We can assist you in negotiating the sometimes rocky waters of matters involving limited coverage or partly excluded losses, underinsurance, and sharing costs and proceeds of recoveries involving uninsured loss

Added value

Our strong expertise in professional indemnity adds value to our property clients – providing comprehensive advice and support particularly when potential recoveries come to be considered.

Our team has strong working relationships with all of the major property adjusters, and with experts including forensic engineers, building experts and fire cause examiners. This provides our clients with the benefit of priority access to their services, as well as training and informal, ad-hoc opinions.

We provide our clients with a thorough forensic due diligence analysis of the claim, whilst at all times remaining sensitive to the relationship between the insured and our client, and to the insured’s commercial relationships.
