Our Northern Ireland office in Belfast is the only pure litigation practice in the jurisdiction with a focus on the insurance industry, advising on coverage, defence and recovery matters.

Our expertise lies in providing trusted, commercial advice to UK-based and local insurers across industry sectors including:

  • Manufacturing and retail
  • Construction and quarries
  • Private healthcare
  • Heavy industry
  • Shipping (including arrests) and travel
  • Transport and logistics.

We advise on regulatory matters, defend clients in health and safety prosecutions and appear at coronial inquiries. We defend liability actions from catastrophic claims to everyday employers’ and public liability, and road traffic accident claims.

We provide expert advice on professional negligence matters within financial services, construction (architects, engineers, quantity surveyors), healthcare (medical facilities and professionals), real estate and insurance (brokers).
