Insurance and reinsurance
Complete coverage and litigation service for composite insurers, specialist insurers, syndicates, reinsurers, captives, large corporates and self-insured organisations.
When insurance or reinsurance claims become contentious, particularly when larger sums are at stake, more advanced strategies are needed to bring them to a conclusion. This may involve out-of-court dispute resolution or, ultimately, litigation. Whatever the requirements of the individual case, the expertise and skills of the legal advisers concerned can make a significant difference to the outcome.
Weightmans' Risk and Insurance team is renowned in this specialist field, not only for consistently achieving successful results for our clients but also for providing a highly efficient and thoroughly comprehensive service.
We cover a wide range of claims including directors and officers, medical malpractice, marine, personal injury, political risk and terrorism, professional risks, property damage and business interruption, regulatory and reinsurance, with specialist teams dedicated to workplace, disease, catastrophic injury, motor, the London market and public sector. These in turn are segmented into specific industries such as retail, leisure, construction, transport, logistics, security, travel and rail.
As a client, you will receive additional support where necessary from our in-house investigation, fraud and costs teams to help build the strongest case possible. You will also be kept fully informed of progress through our advanced case management systems, which allow you to access your own files via secure internet links.
