Brokers

“Fenchurch Law have always provided me with quick, accurate and commercial legal advice when I’ve needed it. The answers that they have given me have then allowed me to go back to my policyholder client with more information than I would have had otherwise, and helped me plan the best strategy for resolution of my client’s insurance issues”.

Claims Manager, Global Insurance Broker

“Fenchurch Law has been a breath of fresh air to us. A broker’s life has never been more difficult than in this current market, in terms of Underwriters taking policy coverage points wherever they can. A broker can only challenge these matters up to a point, and sometimes specialist legal advice is required to help resolve and unblock and insurance coverage dispute”.

Peter Mileham, Grosvenor
