Property damage & recovery

 

Our property damage dispute resolution practice is one of the biggest names in the property sector. We have a well-established and respected team that has vast experience advising some of the UK’s largest insurers and specialist Lloyd’s underwriters on all types of property damage claims. This includes policy coverage, multi-million pound fire spread claims, subsidence, infrastructure damage claims, flood damage, and building defect claims through to engineering and Party Wall Act disputes. We have particular specialisms in policy coverage involving fraudulent property damage claims relating to arson, theft and malicious damage and have considerable experience of managing bulk low-value property damage and liability claims recovery schemes.

Acting for some of the largest insurers, brokers, MGAs and corporates in the property sector, our dedicated property insurance lawyers provide advice, liability defence and coverage expertise, which includes policy drafting, interpretation and advice on the scope of cover and breach of policy terms and conditions. We understand the issues that affect property developers, property owners, as well as residential and commercial landlords.

In addition, we operate highly efficient subrogated recovery schemes for a large number of insurers and corporate policyholders.
