An international team with deep specialty insurance understanding
We handle cases for insurers in the London and international markets from start to finish, providing advice on claims, recoveries, product development, wordings and international disputes.
From political risk & trade credit to bloodstock, specie to kidnap & ransom, and contingency to fine art, Clyde & Co has proved its skill in representing insurers and reinsurers on a diverse range of issues arising from significant national and international losses in the specialty insurance market.
We have a multi-jurisdictional team across the firm's international network providing specialist advice to insurers in the London and overseas markets. We handle cases from start to finish, providing counsel in the areas of claims, recoveries, product development, wordings and international disputes.
We pride ourselves on the depth of our industry understanding, and seek to resolve disputes by reference to commercial imperatives as well as by providing high-quality legal advice.
Our areas of experience within the specialty insurance classes include accident & health, bloodstock, contingency, cyber, fine art, kidnap & ransom, political risk & trade credit, product recall, specie & jewellers' block and surety.
A market leader in this specialised class, our global team advises leading political risk and trade credit insurers on product development, claims, recoveries and international disputes.
Spanning Clyde & Co's global network, our market-leading Political Risk and Trade Credit team acts for insurance clients in cases involving a range of jurisdictions, often in very difficult markets, and including matters of international and local laws as well as insurance issues. We have been instrumental in product development and handle issues arising throughout the life-cycle of risk.
We act for insurers in London, the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, partnering with clients on all of the major crises affecting the political risk and trade credit markets in the last 30 years. Recent examples include advising on claims arising from: the Arab Spring in Egypt and Libya; bank collapses in Ukraine and Kazakhstan following the global financial crisis; and the 2010 disturbances in Thailand.
We are experienced in the preferred forums for dispute resolution in this class—particularly the London Court of International Arbitration and the Commercial Court in London—and in arbitrations under the rules of the ICC and UNCITRAL.
