Broker liability


We have the necessary detailed understanding and familiarity with the standard documentation of brokers and the legal obligations upon them.

Such obligations include those to investigate and those to advise, both as to the insurance needs of their clients and the liability that can arise if they do not implement satisfactory cover or properly advise as to the limitations of that cover.

We have extensive experience of acting on behalf of and against brokers in relation to negligence claims arising out of allegations of:

  • Inadequate cover;
  • Failure to take account of, or to explain 'arranging'; &
  • Failure to understand a policy holder’s insurance requirements.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the above or any other disputes matters, please contact us.
