We have an outstanding, proven track record of successfully dealing with a wide range of business interruption insurance matters for insurers, loss adjusters and corporates.
Our approach is distinctively commercial, focused on delivering solutions across a broad range of matters including: electricity generation and capacity claims (including in the renewables sector), losses at financial brokerages (involving complex financial trades, swaps and derivatives), educational provider losses, railway and utility sector business interruption claims (following sometimes catastrophic events) and the whole gamut of real estate sector claims (spanning fund managers' portfolios, large retail park losses and individual property owner events).
A solutions-driven multi-disciplinary approach
Across our national and international practice we work with a proven network of other expert suppliers well versed in the sector nuances that can arise with business interruption claims. These include our own internal expert forensic accountancy team as well as specialist external forensics' firms.
The Impact of COVID-19
COVID-19 has become a major issue for insurers which spans geographic borders. With policyholders looking beyond property damage-based business interruption claims, to see if they might claim for wider non-damage losses based on, for example, notifiable disease and denial of access.
We are advising clients across the broader spectrum of related policy coverage issues and claims, from employer's liability advice on the provision of protective equipment and safe workplaces, through to product liability issues, healthcare/medical practice advice, event cancellation, marine/cargo supply chain issues, political risk and trade credit, increased fraud, and regulatory matters etc. Our team are involved in strategic market discussions and litigation surrounding business interruption and related coverage issues, as insurers face threatened action against them.
