Within: Insurance and reinsurance litigation

The 'exceptional' team at RPC has a great reputation in the financial lines sector, spanning financial indemnity, D&O and professional indemnity claims. Practice head Simon Laird specialises in this sector and divides his time between Bristol and London. 'Excellent technical lawyer' Simon Goldring and James Wickes regularly handle D&O disputes. The team is also increasingly instructed on trade credit and political risk matters, often handled by expert Naomi Vary, as well as on cross-border and domestic property claims under the leadership of Victoria Sherratt. Other areas of growth are power generation and energy, for which the 'outstanding' Leigh Williams and Gary Walkling are the key contacts.

  • Cancelling insurance: insolvency and downgrade clauses

    One of the most common concerns for both parties to an insurance contract (including reinsurance) is that the other party might become insolvent and unable to perform its obligations under the contract. Both insurer and insured will therefore wish to have the right to cancel the insurance mid-term in the event of the other party’s insolvency, or a change in its financial circumstances that makes its insolvency a more likely prospect in the near future.
