Our expertise

Insurers are well served by high quality legal advisers, with firms like Clyde & Co, Kennedys, and DAC Beachcroft employing literally hundreds of lawyers whose time is spent exclusively on representing the interests of insurers.

Policyholders, on the other hand, have traditionally been less well represented and have had to turn to non-specialist solicitors for advice when insurance disputes arose. These generalist solicitors may not understand the intricacies of the insurance market and may fail to successfully navigate the complexities required to deliver the best possible outcomes for clients. There has been an inequality of arms between insurers and almost every policyholder for far too long, and our specialist lawyers are determined to level the playing field.

Fenchurch Law exists to provide policyholders with access to the same high quality, specialist and expert insurance legal advice that insurers have been able to take for granted for decades.

We are genuine insurance specialists, having previously worked for leading companies in a variety of roles including insurance broker, claims adjuster and insurer-side lawyer. Every single member of our team of solicitors has direct experience of the insurance market and all the insight and understanding that brings. All focus exclusively on insurance coverage work.

Our highly experienced and specialist lawyers are organised into three main practice areas: Construction & Property Risks, Financial & Commerical Risks and Reinsurance & International Risks.

Each practice area is partner-led and comprises experienced and talented lawyers, with a reputation for innovation and a commitment to solving complex problems simply and efficiently.
