Based predominantly in London, our Insurance team handles all aspects of contentious and non-contentious insurance work in the marine and non-marine markets.

Highly regarded within the industry, and with expertise spanning a wide variety of business sectors, we provide a comprehensive service to policyholders as well as to insurers, brokers and other industry professionals.

We regularly advise on policy interpretation, coverage disputes and issues involving misrepresentation, non-disclosure and breach of warranty. Our strong team often acts in large-scale property damage disputes, disputes over goods stored at commercial premises, claims arising from fire and flood damage and business interruption. In many cases, there is no dispute about policy coverage, so we work with policyholders and their insurers to defend third party claims against the policyholder or pursue recourse claims against liable parties.

Our full service offer and national reach enables us to create bespoke teams of specialists whenever required, by pulling together experts from across Gateley Plc. Recent instructions led to the creation of a specialist unit comprising experts from our Insurance, Construction and Corporate Recovery teams, for example. Our core team is strengthened by a market leading surety law practice based in Manchester.
