Recognising that subrogated recoveries are a key part of the claims cycle for insurers, we provide a comprehensive and global solution covering straightforward property damage cases to highly complex construction and environmental liability cases.
Insurance recoveries is a specialised process that involves a combination of legal insurance knowledge and commercial negotiation and litigation skills. Our teams are recognized as leaders in this field and have a proven model and determination to achieve optimal results. We maintain a common global approach of robust early assessment of the merits of a case and efficient case management.
We operate in all fields of property and liability internationally where we provide locally-qualified property specialists around the globe, with particular teams focused on the UK and Europe, the Americas, the Middle East / Africa and Asia-Pacific. Our lawyers have gained experience within many different sectors over the years, giving us the ability to apply specific market, technical and jurisdictional knowledge to every matter we handle.
We often jointly pursue insured and uninsured losses either on a usual basis, or by way of a subrogation agreement whereby the recovery and costs are apportioned by agreement between insurer and insured.
We are prepared to share in the risks of pursuing subrogation recoveries and this is reflected in the flexible fee arrangements that we can offer. Which can include fixed fees for low value claims, no win no fee arrangements, and conditional fee agreements.
In addition to claims recoveries on existing portfolios, our services include closed file audits to identify recovery opportunities. We can arrange for our team to attend your offices or work remotely to review concluded property claims to see whether subrogation opportunities exist. We can then pursue those recoveries on your behalf and the data extracted can be used to enhance the performance of claims handlers and loss adjusters.
