The team has attracted praise by clients for its work in the pharmaceutical sector (which is a particular field of expertise for Catherine Percy), but also acts in the telecoms, insurance, and retail sectors. Lambros Kilaniotis advises on both contentious and non-contentious matters and heads the practice, where Chris Ross is another key figure.

  • 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.
