The Team

At Lupton Fawcett, our team works to achieve commercially focused, cost-effective solutions for large public companies, directors and officers, brokers, creditors/financiers and receivers/administrators. We put our client’s objectives at the heart of our work and adopt a proactive and pragmatic approach throughout proceedings. Our insurance solicitors will always advise on whether disputes should be resolved through court proceedings or alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, adjudication or arbitration.

Preventing Disputes

One of the most effective ways of preventing a dispute is by avoiding it in the first place. When choosing an insurance policy, do not just choose one that is ‘one size fits all’ and make sure you are aware of the full extent of the cover you are being offered. A failure or breach could lead to your insurance company turning down a payout.

If you are unsure, our solicitors can offer legal advice on whether an insurance policy is suited to your business and your requirements. We are also equipped to go to court with any insurers if your case goes that way. We will do everything in our power to ensure a fair outcome without going to trial.
