A role has now arisen within this team for a 2pqe+ solicitor to join this strong insurance coverage practice focusing on advising policyholders regarding coverage matters including advice on policy wordings, claims notification and disputed insurance claims.

Much of the work has an international element and there is close liaison with foreign offices whose clients often need advice in relation to English law/London market issues or where there is a London seated arbitration, provision whether linked to English applicable law or a foreign law. The role will also involve some non-contentious work such as reviewing insurance policies and drafting bespoke clauses or policy wordings, again for policyholders.

This role will assist in developing skills of investigation, analysis and negotiation by helping policyholder clients remain one step ahead by advising on the complexities and challenges of many liability and loss contexts. Areas might include directors' and officers' liability, professional indemnity, crime/fidelity, property and business interruption, product liability/product recall, credit risk/political risk, cyber risks/liabilities, warranty and indemnity/M&A insurance as well as the Bermuda Form.
