Within: Insurance and reinsurance

Brick Court Chambers is 'one of the leading sets for insurance and reinsurance work' thanks to its 'range of able counsel', according to clients. Eight members of chambers were instructed on the high-profile Single Buoy Moorings v Zurich Insurance case, where Mark Howard QC, Neil Calver QC, Stephen Midwinter QC, Tony Singla and Fred Hobson played a key role. FRC v KPMG (re Equity Red Star), which examined the alleged deficient auditing of the technical reserves of a Lloyd’s Motor Syndicate, was a notable case for Simon Salzedo QC in which he led Hobson. Meanwhile, Singla was also instructed in Crowden v QBE Insurance, which involved the interpretation and application of an exclusion in a professional liability insurance policy to a claim for mis-selling of financial instruments.
