Our barristers have been instructed in some of the most significant reported cases of recent years, including the DC Merwestone, the latest word on fraudulent devices; the Cendor Mopu, the leading authority on inherent vice; and Beazley Underwriting v Al Ahleia Insurance, a ground-breaking case dealing with claims control clauses in reinsurance policies.

We have also acted in cases concerning many of the major market issues of recent years, such as claims arising from Somali piracy, the Asian tsunami, the credit crunch, the Arab Spring and the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
