Insurance disputes

The interpretation of insurance policies and schedules to those policies can be complex . Not only do you need to know whether an event or liability is covered by your insurer but you also need to understand what value your insurer is liable to pay for the damage or liability is it covering.  I have acted in-house for a large insurer and I have the the skills and knowledge to advise you of your entitlements under your insurance policy. 

The Canterbury Earthquakes have raised several issues in the insurance law practice in New Zealand. I have been involved in multiple residential and large commercial insurance claims arising from the Canterbury Earthquakes, including managing proceedings that have been lodged in the High Court Earthquake List. 

I have also been involved in negotiating settlements on behalf of the insurer.  Let my knowledge gained from working for the insurer assist you in your disputed insurance claim.
