The firm advises most if not all of the top insurance houses in the market on national and international disputes.
A WIDE VARIETY OF COMPLEX WORK
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.
EXCELLENT TECHNICAL UNDERSTANDING AND COMMERCIAL APPROACH
Candidates must be bright, ambitious and driven with an excellent technical understanding of commercial disputes. Previous property liability or commercial insurance experience would be an obvious advantage though this is rare skill set in the market. Therefore, the team would also be interested in hearing from those with a more generic litigation background including commercial litigation and insurance litigation.
