About Elborne Mitchell LLP
Elborne Mitchell was established in the 1960s and since then has played a key role as a trusted legal advisor to companies within the insurance industry and beyond.
The firm has acted in numerous cases which have made the headlines throughout the years, including:
- Asbestosis and computer leasing litigation in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
- The mysterious loss of the MV Derbyshire in the South China seas.
- Sanctions-busting operations in South Africa and the uncovering of the largest ever maritime fraud with the sinking of the MV Salem.
- The tide of litigation which engulfed Lloyd’s in the late 1980s and led to Lloyd’s Reconstruction & Renewal Plan in 1996.
- The invasion of Kuwait in August 1990 and the theft by Saddam Hussein of most of the Kuwait Airways fleet.
- The LMX spiral of personal accident and workers’ compensation claims.
We have continued to build on this long established and successful record.
Today Elborne Mitchell is recognised as a leading provider of specialist legal services to the insurance market and to a range of commercial clients (including national and international lending institutions) across a number of practice areas.
