Our Construction Insurance practice forms a key part of our well established and highly regarded national Insurance Disputes Team.
We have an impressive track record in successfully defending complex construction disputes and have been providing specialist advice in the insurance market for over 40 years. The Insurance Disputes Team specialise in the defence of high value and complex claims against professionals and our construction insurance practice encompasses claims against contractors, specialist sub-contractors, architects, engineers, interior designers, consultants, surveyors, valuers and planners. We are acting in a number of the most high-profile construction disputes and public inquiries in the industry at present.
We have an opportunity for a Professional Indemnity Lawyer to join the team in London.
So, what will you be doing?
With no two claims the same in this varied role you'll work on disputes across multiple professions within the construction sphere as well as undertaking detailed policy coverage investigations. You'll defend claims against all types of construction professional and advise them and their Insurers on strategy and case management. You will develop contacts and relationships with both Insureds and Insurer clients and assist in the long-term development of the business.
We work closely alongside our Construction & Engineering Team who provide the full range of construction related dispute and transactional advice, so there is also the opportunity to get involved in non-insurance related construction disputes. The majority of our fee-earners get the opportunity to go on client secondment which will help you to better understand our clients' commercial endeavours.
