What is Insurance, Financial & Professional Disputes (National PI)?
Our National PI business line co-ordinates our insurer-led professional liability work across our UK offices. We defend claims against the full range of non-medical professionals: our expertise includes the traditional professions (solicitors, accountants and other financial professionals, insurance brokers, surveyors and construction professionals) as well as the non-traditional and emerging professions (such as recruitment agents, estate agents, IT consultants, media companies and patent attorneys). Members of our team also provide professional indemnity coverage advice to insurers, including in relation to sensitive issues such as dishonesty.
The ability to build and maintain strong client relationships is key to our success: our lawyers are “market people”, and we offer them a wide range of business development opportunities including secondments to major insurers.
