Coverage advice to Lloyd's underwriters

Background

Wes and his team provided coverage advice to Lloyd's underwriters subscribing to a Commercial Builders Structural Defects Policy concerning a multi-million dollar claim for indemnity, arising from the allegedly defective design and construction of a fire station.

Our role

Wes and his team analysed questions of late notification, whether the defects—which were the subject of the claim against the insured—were structural defects and whether those items triggered the insuring clause.

Outcome

After lengthy negotiations, the claim for indemnity was withdrawn by the insured.
