Insurance Litigation

Woodfords has extensive experience in advising clients on their policies and the placing of their insurance risk. We also assist with insurance disputes relating to insurance policies and in particular policy avoidance by the insurance provider.

If you would like advice on your policy or you wish to make a claim, we can consider your policy documents and advise you on how to present the claim to the policy provider and deal with any possible coverage disputes at the outset.

If the claim is subsequently declined, we can discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of commencing court proceedings, including any associated costs. We are, however, always mindful of the expense of court proceedings and can also discuss ADR with you and assist with any submission to the Financial Ombudsman.

What it will cost

We are happy to have an initial discussion over the phone regarding international matters free of charge. After that we will charge a consultation fee if a meeting is required. During this we will endeavour to provide a fixed price quotation for our services and clear guidance on any further costs. The consultation fee will usually be deducted from the overall legal costs.

What our clients say

“Not knowing Woodfords when we initially instructed them, I found Claire Larnder and her colleagues to be truly professional throughout our case and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if needed.”
