We run matters for clients through the Financial Ombudsman Service in circumstances where insurance companies refuse to cover claims or not cover the entirety of the claim. We also act in large matters, including a $3 million insurance claim against an insurance company where it refused to pay out a factory fire claim. After an 8 day Supreme Court trial the insurance company was ordered to pay the $3 million, interest on that amount from the date of the claim and our client’s full legal costs.
