Legal Solutions

Professional and Financial Services

Providing clients with a highly personalised, efficient, and cost-effective claims service.

Legal Solutions handle the defence of professional indemnity claims for insurers, reinsurers, and financial institutions against a wide range of professional advisers including accountants, those working in the IT, construction, and veterinary industries. Our expertise covers areas including D&O, pension trustee, employment practices, and general civil liability.

We focus on resolving claims and disputes in the most timely and cost-effective way while enabling clients to maintain their commercial relationships. Where possible, we also work closely with insurers, professionals, and brokers to prevent a problem from turning into a claim, advising insurers and reinsurers on all aspects of policy coverage. We handle litigated and pre-litigated claims, arbitrations, adjudications, and complaints, including those to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

Our market-leading (re)insurance contract wording and drafting team deal with the full range of work in this area. From revisions and updates to specific clauses, to drafting wordings from scratch, and undertaking wholesale reviews of (re)insurers’ product lines.  We are regularly instructed to work with underwriters on innovation and product development, with in-house counsel on compliance issues and wordings professionals on drafting assignments.
