Insurance & Insurance Litigation

Insurance & Insurance Litigation

overview

Our Insurance and Insurance Litigation team is highly skilled and collectively, has many years of experience in handling everything to do with insurance. Just as important as technical expertise however is having a good "feel" for what a matter is worth, satisfying your real needs and achieving the best possible outcomes. That's the edge our clients really appreciate.

Insurance is about protecting insureds from the consequences of day to day events unfolding differently than might have been intended or expected. Not only can we help protect the insureds, we can also persuade Courts to impose liabilities on others through the recovery of losses from third parties.

Insurance policies do not always work as intended. There may be a question about what happened before the policy’s inception, what the terms and conditions of the policy mean and how they might be applied to any particular set of facts. The answers to all of these questions are likely to be informed by the application of relevant legislation, such as the Insurance Contracts Act, and decisions about similar facts and wording. Our Insurance and Corporate Risk team is experienced in resolving these types of questions and making sure that the policy is applied correctly.

Do you need a hand drafting a policy? Do you have a regulatory issue? Maybe you want to establish an underwriting agency.

Our aim is to identify the real issues quickly and work with you to implement an effective resolution strategy which takes into account your overall goals. We actively seek to employ alternative dispute resolution techniques where appropriate, resulting in significant cost savings to you.

Our work has included commercial and insurance matters for local and international insurers, reinsurers, self-insurers, institutional clients and government departments and agencies.

Our insurance expertise can help you with:

  • Advising on and resolving claims and other insurance-related disputes
  • Policy construction
  • Indemnity advice
  • Insurance Contracts Act advice
  • Insurance Product development
  • Compliance and Financial Services advice
  • Corporate Governance for insurance companies, captives and mutuals, and
  • Insurance distribution arrangements.
