Construction insurance

As an essential part of risk management on any project, insurance is a specialist area that must not be overlooked.

With a thorough understanding of the insurance market, reinforced by close relationships with insurance industry organisations, we advise a significant number of Lloyd’s and corporate insurers and those that they insure. Our lawyers advise on domestic and international projects including across Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and Australasia.

We specialise in advising on all types of related policies including: Construction All Risk; Design and Construct; Professional Indemnity; project specific and general liability. In addition we deal with contentious construction (design and workmanship) and health and safety issues to assist clients in matters that may involve an insurance angle.

Our lawyers also advise on policy wording and interpretation in relation to provisions required for a project (including LEG/DE design and defect exclusions) and apportionment of risk prior to a job starting and any disputes which may arise. We have experience of working with both the insured and their insurers on subrogated matters to ensure the best recovery for both parties.
