Hanna Platt


  • I am a Partner in BLM's Property Damage team and specialise in all aspects of property damage claims including policy coverage disputes, subrogated recoveries and third party liability.
  • I regularly deal with complex and high value claims involving a range of perils with a particular emphasis on fires, floods, explosions, landslips, escapes of water and mechanical and electrical defects.
  • I also advise insurers on policy coverage issues relating to both commercial and domestic policies and including matters such as breach of the duty of fair presentation under the Insurance Act 2015, policy conditions and exclusions, contribution clauses, waiver and affirmation and the basis of settlement provisions.
  • Recent cases include a number of high value fire claims involving issues of workmanship relating to servicing and maintenance, a third party liability claim arising out of damage caused by a chemical explosion and escape of water claims relating to mechanical and engineering defects.
  • I also recently acted in a multi-million pound policy coverage dispute involving non-disclosures of material facts and breach of the duty of fair presentation under the Insurance Act 2015.
