Insurance law is a highly complex area in which there is no substitute for market knowledge, technical excellence and sector expertise. The right expertise will help ensure the quick and favourable resolution to a dispute.
Keystone's Insurance team handles a wide variety of insurance matters.
On the contentious side, we handle small domestic claims as well as extremely large, complex, international disputes. Coverage disputes represent a particularly strong area of expertise. The team has an excellent track record of achieving settlements through early pre-action negotiation, mediation and the Financial Ombudsman. We take a commercial and pragmatic approach in seeking to resolve insurance disputes and will only suggest litigation where absolutely necessary.
On the non-contentious side, we advise on policy drafting and compliance issues including risk reduction strategies. Our health and safety practice focuses on reducing accident rates and assisting clients in achieving and maintaining compliance within health and safety law. Our approach is grounded in industry best practice and designed to add value by designing and implementing tailored health and safety management systems and risk reduction strategies.
