We frequently draw on our combined expertise in construction, property damage and insurance claims to deal with the complex issues concerning the insurance of construction and infrastructure projects.
We have an excellent understanding of the construction sector and of all the insurance policies that have been developed to underpin it.
A number of our barristers have considerable expertise in this area, acting for the London Market and international insurers and reinsurers on Construction All Risks and Delay to Start Up claims. We are experienced in acting on complex liability claims, dealing with subrogated recovery actions and advising on coverage matters, including joint insurance, for both insurers and their insured. We have dealt with policy coverage issues and losses arising in major construction projects in the UK and overseas, in relation to commercial, domestic, industrial and energy works.
We advise in relation to all types of claim particularly those relating to flood, fire, explosions, extreme weather phenomena, inherent defect, deficient design and workmanship, and physical damage, including to plants and machinery. We are highly regarded for our experience in the current and significant issues relating to cladding and advise as to scope of claims under CAR policies.
