7 King's Bench Walk is 'the premier set for insurance and reinsurance work'; it 'consistently provides the desired balance of incredibly bright and talented barristers while also being approachable and enjoyable to work alongside'. Single Buoy Moorings v Zurich Insurance which concerned damage to the MOPUstor platform in the North Seawas a key highlight for the set where Jonathan Gaisman QC, Dominick Kendrick QC, David Bailey QC, Alistair Schaff QC, and several juniors from chambers, were instructed. Also of note, Peter MacDonald Eggers QC is instructed by Lloyd's Underwriters in Shuffle Along v Lloyd’s Underwriters, a claim under an event cancellation policy which is litigated in New York. In Cultural Foundation v Beazley Furlonge,  a key claim under a professional liability policy relating to two construction projects in the UAE, MacDonald Eggers QC led Marcus Mander on behalf of the excess insurers and James Brocklebank QC acted for the American School of Dubai.
