Our insurance litigation team carry out all types of work for the public sector, self-insured companies and major insurers. Many clients nominate us to their insurers, ensuring that they benefit from our pragmatic approach and bespoke service.

We handle employers' liability, public liability, road traffic and occupiers' liability actions. From catastrophic injury cases to 'slips and trips', from fatal disease cases to stress and harassment; our insurance litigation lawyers can help you.


Benefits we bring to your business 

Our clients wish to reduce the number and cost of claims. We work with them to provide solutions that achieve this. By reviewing trends we identify where claims volumes can be reduced and cost savings made. We provide training to managers on how to reduce the risk of accidents and develop bespoke systems for handling claims in the most efficient way for each individual organisation. We get close to our clients so that we can deliver the service that benefits their business.

Technology is important to us. We use it to ensure we can work together with clients and Counsel, delivering a seamless service, from the sharing of documents to the inclusion of everyone at meetings.  We improve efficiencies through the use of technology, reducing the life cycle of claims and delivering cost savings.

Recent examples of cases we have advised on include a catastrophic injury motor claim where the sum sued for was £25m, a fatal claim which was allocated to a jury trial and high value historic abuse claims.

Jenny Dickson is extremely able and has excellent judgement about which cases to potentially fight and which cases to compromise. She is certainly not scared though of fighting cases that should be fought.
