Financial lines

Current economic conditions have created significant liability risks for professionals and corporate management including directors and officers. Increased exposure to litigation and investigation has increased in various business and industry segments. Insurance companies are responding to this increased risk by providing multiple insurance products providing coverage for these exposures.

Global Insurance Law Connect lawyers advise professionals, directors and officers and financial institutions on management liability and professional indemnity claims. Our lawyers also provide coverage advice to insurance companies related to these claims. Our focus is to work with you to address all of the legal needs of the professional, providing advice and representation for claims of breach of duty/negligence and also on risks that arise under professional liability policies. This can include directors and officers, errors & omissions liability claims resulting from professional activities, commercial crime, fraud, defamation, privacy and claims against trustee liability policies as well as claims asserted by the FDIC.

Our multijurisdictional approach empowers each firm to assist insurers, whilst taking into account different rules and approaches to similar issues in each jurisdiction.

Whether it’s pre-litigated claims or the defence of multimillion pound breach of fiduciary duty or negligence claims, we lead on high profile cases globally, as well as in our local markets. Collectively, we have acted in some of the largest professional group actions of recent years.

Our clients include insurers, including global, national and London Market insurers and underwriters and their policyholders.
