        Insurers face increasing pressure in terms of rates and ultimate profitability. When the rising cost of claims is added to ever changing regulations, executing the right strategies for success has never been more important.

        Our experts begin with an in-depth analysis of your claims profiles, as well as the trends and associated costs. We use market-leading, innovative technology, such as predictive analytics and consultancy to support a sustainable, excellent service. We offer all clients real-time access to your own, bespoke claims management information (MI). This MI can be used to analyse claims as they arise, support accident prevention strategies and reduce risk overall.

         We take the time to know every client we work with. To understanding your needs, objectives and ways of working – in particular the ultimate objective of delivering the indemnity savings and insight needed to mitigate claims and litigation frequency.

        We provide an approachable, tailored service that supports you in achieving your strategic objectives faster and more cost effectively.

        Working both in the UK and internationally we are a top four UK insurance firm and we have one of the largest specialist insurance teams in the UK, supporting both the public and private sectors. We are consistently ranked in the first tier across the full spectrum of insurance claims, from directories such as the Legal 500 and Chambers.

        Our clients include some of the UK's largest and well-known insurers, adjusters and corporates, including Ageas, Aviva, Chubb, Inter Hannover, Markerstudy Group, QBE, RSA, Travelers and Zurich.
