Construction Insurance

Expert, experienced and resourceful, our Construction team resolve complex construction disputes cost-effectively.

Our Construction insurance team based in London, Bristol, Hong Kong and Singapore has a wealth of experience advising clients on CAR/EAR claims and is a market leader in defending negligence claims against construction professionals.

Insurance plays a big part in the management of construction risk. We defend negligence claims against engineers, architects, designers, and contractors, mechanical and electrical engineers, and quantity surveyors. These professionals, and their insurers, choose us because we're experienced in defending claims, whether in litigation, arbitration, or adjudication in the UK, Hong Kong, Singapore and internationally.

Our team also advises insurers and reinsurers on coverage matters under all risks (CAR/EAR/WELCAR/DSU) and single project PI insurance in relation to a range of infrastructure and energy risks from bridges, tunnels and airports to power stations, petrochemical facilities, offshore platforms and pipelines.
