The practice

The Firm’s lawyers have been working with key players in the insurance market for many years, and have developed a deep understanding of industry rules. We are constantly improving our professional skills by sharing practical experience with insurance companies, reinsurers, insurers and loss adjusters.

In our work, we seek to resolve disputes in a mutually beneficial and peaceful manner. We provide an impartial analysis of judicial and regulatory risks and give our clients objective advice as to their further options.

Our lawyers develop and implement effective measures to counteract any unlawful insurance claims, and oppose malevolent counterparties in litigation.

Our experience has shown that insurance disputes may entail the involvement of specialists in areas such as maritime, tax, customs, or criminal law. The Firm has recognised expertise in all of these and other areas of law, and we always provide our clients with comprehensive professional advice.

Some of our lawyers are members of the expert councils of industry regulators. This means we can provide you with legal support based on an up-to-date understanding of the law and regulatory positions.
