Professional liability

You may be making a claim against a professional person or be that person; or you may be a solicitor or barrister for one of the parties, or a PII insurer for the person defending a claim.

Policy and coverage

You will hold, or have an interest in, a contract of insurance or be an insurer.

Your dispute

Professional liability

Many of the disputes we deal with are concerned with claims against professionals involved with property. This includes claims against:

  • Solicitors and barristers
  • Surveyors and valuers
  • Estate agents 
  • Property managers
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Project managers
  • Financial advisers
  • Insurance brokers
  • Designers and manufacturers

Insurance policy and coverage disputes

We also mediate insurance coverage disputes. 

There may be a dispute over the terms of the policy, the extent of cover, the insurers' rejection of a claim or avoidance of a policy.

Disputes may involve claims concerning:

  • Misrepresentation and non-disclosure
  • Under insurance
  • Overstatement of claims
  • Notification
  • Aggregation
  • Non-compliance with policy conditions
  • Interpretation of policy wording
  • Contributions between multiple insurers.

The Property Mediators are uniformly excellent. They each display the key attributes of great mediators: patience, integrity, clarity of purpose, sensitivity and understanding, legal acumen and the ability to coax even the most obstinate person into a concession you never thought they ever would make.
