We work for insurers, reinsurers and self-insureds across a range of industry sectors and adopt a flexible approach to ensure that teams are tailored to meet the needs of our clients.
As a Limited Company we can take early decisions on important strategic issues without the potential for disputes between conflicting interest groups within an equity partnership structure, such as an LLP. Our focus is exclusively on the insurance legal market which means there’s no internal competition for resources, investment etc. from other non-insurance, corporate or commercial departments.
Protecting and improving margins whilst growing market share is imperative for our clients. In an increasingly competitive and regulated environment, we understand the challenges facing insurers, reinsurers, underwriters and brokers.
As the legal market servicing the insurance and reinsurance sector consolidates we are a major player in our field. Through our single focus, our strategy has been to build up specialist teams covering all the major fields as well as developing a number of niche specialisms.
We currently employ over 600 lawyers and handle in excess of 150,000 claims per annum. The firm has a national network of offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Evesham, Croydon and Edinburgh. We have developed a claims handling ‘Centre of Excellence’ in our Leeds office.
Central to our approach is cost containment and the minimisation of leakage. We aim to control indemnity spend and reduce life cycles. Senior practitioners will work across all classes of cases to ensure the best possible service and outcomes for our clients.
Vectus, our unique and highly effective case management system has been developed by us to manage claims as efficiently as possible. The system provides detailed management and Business Information; data that gives you (and us) a competitive edge.
For a number of our clients we have implemented our ‘Proactive’ approach to handling their bodily injury claims and one reported in their financial accounts that:
“Reserve releases of £278.4 million in 2014 were driven primarily by continued favorable experience on bodily injury claims. The group believes that it is currently outperforming the industry in respect of small bodily claims experience”.
Lean and fit for purpose with a significant track record, we are there to support your legal needs and help you achieve your business goals.
