A combination of our detailed knowledge and experience in healthcare, coupled with our expertise and long-standing track record in financial services, has enabled us to develop a comprehensive and fast growing practice in the critical illness, healthcare and life insurance market.
We have considerable experience advising healthcare and life insurance clients, and our 40-strong expert team includes lawyers from every department within the firm.
Our clients benefit from a full range of standard legal services, including employment, property and commercial/regulatory advice. In addition, we combine this with very specific expertise and knowledge around mis-selling and policy indemnity/coverage disputes, where we are particularly valued for our ability to determine the true medical prognosis of a policyholder. We have also been involved in a number of cases to prevent the misuse of confidential information, data protection and, increasingly, fraudulent claims.
We also have extensive experience of dealing the Financial Ombudsman Service in connection with complaints that have been brought by policy holders over policy interpretation or coverage issues
We regularly advise specialist critical illness and healthcare insurance clients, as well as a number of mainstream insurers. This experience has given us extensive knowledge of the sector and a valuable insight into the regulatory context in which insurers operate.
