Recoveries Insurance

Our team specialises in maximising recoveries for home and contents, landlord, motor, transport, marine, commercial, and construction insurers. We pursue recovery matters  with diverse circumstances against third parties responsible for losses covered under insurance policies.

Our approach to all recoveries is practical, commercially focused, and tailored to meet the specific objectives of our clients.

We manage a high volume of motor claims in recoveries and defended quantum disputes and credit hire claims. The motor litigation portfolio requires proficient processes and a strategic approach to litigation. Our experienced motor team has a stellar track record in achieving industry-leading outcomes for its insurer clients.

We also understand that recoveries are best achieved through collaboration among all business stakeholders. When done properly, recoveries can provide insurers with a valuable additional income stream.

To maximise recovery potential, we have developed extensive training programs to assist assessing, claims, and recoveries departments of our insurer clients. These programs are designed to help our clients better identify recovery prospects, improve evidence retention processes, and ultimately maximise recovery revenue.
