Instructions might include claims relating to fire damage, chemical leaks, water escapes as well as construction and engineering disputes. Such claims are often high-value, complex and highly sensitive. The team is renowned for its ability to handle demanding, large-scale contentious matters and has a formidable range of experience on which to draw.

The team will readily consider candidates at all levels including NQs. All applicants should have a proven background in litigation, whether that be in commercial insurance litigation eg property damage; professional indemnity or another area of reinsurance / subrogated loss.

Candidates must be bright, ambitious and driven with an excellent technical understanding of commercial disputes.
