Our global financial institutions and D&O team has an international reach combined with local, on-the ground knowledge
Our global team advises the London market and international insurers and reinsurers on all aspects of FI and D&O work.
Our financial institutions and D&O team advises on some of the largest losses in the insurance market and has a mix of contentious and non-contentious experience.
We act on claims of all sizes and types across five continents, and are experienced in handling complex coverage litigation, arbitration and mediation, monitoring claims for insurers globally, providing strategic input and controlling leakage on large programmes, as well as advising steering committees. We regularly draft FI and D&O policies, and provide practical advice on risk management and corporate governance issues.
We act for insurers and reinsurers on disputes concerning complex investment products, hedging transactions and portfolio management, multimillion pound/dollar mis-selling claims and class actions.
We advise on a wide range of coverage issues including in relation to D&O claims against institutional and retail banks, building societies, pension funds, split capital investment trusts, investment advisers, asset managers and hedge funds.
We also act for insureds in defending claims brought against them in a cost-effective and efficient way.
