Contingency

We have a proven track record in achieving advantageous results for insurer and reinsurer clients in contingency (re)insurance claims. 

Our expertise in this area includes:

• Event cancellation
• Non-appearance
• Film insurance
• Prize indemnity
• Quantum
• Subrogated recoveries 

The team has been particularly active in recent months dealing with lost and damaged equipment, event cancellation and non-appearance claims. 

London Market contingency business is often international in nature and we have considerable experience of handling claims in jurisdictions around the world, including in arbitration and litigation, acting as co-counsel or monitoring counsel.  We select the best local counsel for the claim and always ensure our input from London delivers value and delivers results.

We also regularly deal with claims under reinsurance or fronting arrangements and/or those which involve consortia or lineslips. 

We also act for clients in product development and policy drafting in this area.
