Legal Solutions

Disease

We have the largest dedicated disease team in the UK with more than 130 disease specialists operating from offices in Bolton, Coventry, Liverpool and Glasgow. Our team acts for the majority of the major legacy insurers as well as large corporates and other organisations.

We provide a full service disease offering; combining high level strategic support on the one hand and an experienced scalable volume proposition on the other that deals with all types of disease claim, both long and short tail.

We have a proven track record of successfully defending disease claims – from more routine, low value cases through to high value, complex claims involving multiple defendants and insurers. We commonly deal with complex insurance, corporate history and liability issues and we have substantial experience of coordinating our clients’ first response to a particular type of claim and have worked with many to help formulate their policy for floodgate scenarios involving, for example, NIHL, WRULD, HAVS and dermatitis claims.

We also offer real strategic support both in terms of producing innovative ideas for test litigation, advising on their legal merits and commercial value to insurers, bringing them to a successful conclusion as well as providing policy level advice on legislative and procedural reform. Our exposure in the market has also allowed us to develop significant Know Your Opponent strategies which enable clients to further reduce their indemnity spend.
