Our public sector insurance law team delivers a service that represents best value for our clients. We identify, at an early stage, those cases which have a strong defence and drive them to an early trial. We are proud of our excellent success rate and have developed a reputation for our robust but fair approach; always mindful that we are representing a public body.
The team is led by highly experienced insurance law solicitors, who work closely with our public sector clients and their insurers to ensure a seamless approach. The team have an excellent reputation for their technical expertise, as well as their determination to obtain the right result for clients, seeking early dismissal of unmerited claims through applications for summary judgment or strike out if appropriate. Alternatively, if the claim is "one to settle", we engage with claimants’ representatives to ensure speedy resolution and a cost effective settlement.
We engage with our clients offering additional expertise through seminars and mock trials, also sending regular updates on key issues of interest. We regularly present at conferences including at ALARM (Association of Local Authority Risk Managers) regional and national events and we contribute to journals on issues affecting the public sector.
Carol Dalton is vice chair of the FOIL (Forum of Insurance Lawyers) public sector special focus team and in this role shares knowledge of issues affecting the public sector nationally.
We also benefit from our involvement with IRLA (Insurance and Reinsurance Legacy Association), in respect of horizon scanning for issues that may affect clients in the future.
Our public sector team continues to thrive reflecting a strong profile in the area.
We work hard to raise the bar in everything we do; working closely with public sector teams across the diverse range of services provided, ensuring that at all times their values and reputation are protected and upheld.
We are proud to retain strong relationships with our public sector clients, trusted year after year to deliver an exceptional service.
