We act exclusively for policyholders in high-value, complex insurance disputes.
We advise policyholders on insurance disputes, including business interruption, property, energy and construction, financial and professional risks and casualty.
Who we act for
We only represent policyholders in disputes against insurers. Our team has experience acting for local and multinational clients in the financial services, entertainment, property, construction, hospitality, retail, logistics, manufacturing, energy and sports sectors.
Free to act against insurers
We do not act for insurers in insurance disputes and so are free to pursue claims against the insurance market.
Support from our broader litigation team
We can leverage the broader expertise at Stewarts where case subject matter requires, including in tax, insolvency and asset recovery, financial crime, fraud and employment law. Our combined resources in these areas provide a unique one-stop-shop for insured companies and their directors and officers. We act for policyholders facing third party claims and criminal or regulatory investigations.
International insurance expertise
We regularly act in English litigation and arbitration for clients based in overseas jurisdictions with insurance placed through the London market. Our team is experienced in handling disputes with a broad international reach and particularly those linked to the Asia-Pacific region.
Our funding experience
Our lawyers have unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements to help with insurance disputes. The use of third-party funding, after-the-event insurance and risk-sharing fee agreements enables our clients to manage risk and litigate from a position of financial strength.
