Our Expertise

Warranty & Indemnity (W&I)

Provides cover for financial loss incurred in relation to valid breaches of a warranty or representation pursuant to an acquisition agreement or a claim under a tax covenant or tax indemnity.

Tax Liability

Provides cover for identified tax risks emanating from current, pending or historical transactions or reorganisations. Tax Liability Insurance can shift the responsibility for tax issues from the insured to the insurer, thereby minimising financial risks, uncertainty and associated exposures.


Provides cover to help to unlock capital held in reserves for legacy and contingent liabilities where investment funds are reaching the end of their fund lifespan or where corporate groups are looking to be rationalised.

Contingent Risk

Provides cover to offset the risks associated with specific contingent liabilities that are capable of legal analysis.

Litigation Buy Out

Provides cover for a threatened, anticipated or current litigation, arbitration or dispute by ring-fencing the issue or providing cover in excess of the likely outcome.


Provides cover for a number of real estate and asset related risks. These include challenges to legal title, boundary issues, incapacity of prior owners, restrictive covenants, chancel repair liability, rights to light and missing searches.


We work with insurers who have a strong track record of dealing with claims in a collaborative and swift manner. In case of claims, we involve our experienced team of claims advocates who pride themselves on effective claims management, negotiation, and resolution to help navigate complex insurance related claims.

This is an integral part of the service we offer so that you are supported throughout the lifecycle of the policy.
