Insurance and Reinsurance Disputes

Historically individuals at Hamlins have been involved in some of the most significant issues affecting the insurance and reinsurance market over the last 20 years, including the LMX spiral, the demise of the HS Weavers Pool and film finance insurance. One partner has also been seconded to a major international insurer. We have dealt with complex and varied coverage and recoveries disputes.

Our work covers a range of sectors, including construction, property, manufacturing, product liability and professional indemnity.

We are currently acting for a major contractor providing coverage advice in relation to a very large construction dispute of around £170m. The issues involved are complex and involve several different types of insurers and various layers of cover.

We have experience of all types of insurance policies including PI, PL, D&O, E&O, product liability and CAR insurance policies and are well placed to provide sound commercial cost-effective advice, in particular to insured and reinsureds dealing with large complex coverage disputes with their insurers and reinsurers.
