Litigation and risk matters, in every industry sector

No matter what business you are involved in, it involves operational risks. We are here to help you deal with the outcome in the best way possible.

Our Insurance & Risk team is one of Scotland’s largest and leading insurance practices, providing a specialist, one-stop service to meet the needs of every client.

We provide legal advice on complex insurance, litigation and risk matters for corporate clients in every sector, including some of the UK’s largest private companies, as well as public sector organisations and the insurance industry.

We offer a complete service, incorporating both contentious and non-contentious experience, and provide extensive technical expertise in insurance law and risk management.

The team also deals with pursuing or defending all aspects of claims, including employers’ liability, public liability and road traffic claims.

Taking a collaborative approach ensures their clients are given accurate assessments of the prospects of success at every stage, and the costs likely to be recovered or incurred.
