Advice on all types of property damage and the efficient resolution of related claims.
High-value property damage and business interruption claims are, by their nature, complex and can happen anywhere in the world. They can result from hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, explosions, floods, subsidence, mechanical failure or social and political unrest, and in the context of commercial, construction, distribution, engineering, energy, industrial, leisure or retail projects.
