Elborne Mitchell is well known for its expertise in all aspects of reinsurance litigation and arbitration, having a long-established reputation in this area.
The backbone of English case law in the field of reinsurance is comprised of many Elborne Mitchell cases: the Insurance Company of Africa v SCOR, Phoenix v Halvanon, Youell v Bland Welch, Gan v Tai Ping to name but a few.
We have continued to build on this pedigree and today we are the solicitors of choice for a diverse range of market participants, and count among our clients many household names in the reinsurance field. We act on behalf of brokers, Lloyd’s Syndicates, and insurers and reinsurers both in the London market and overseas. We are experienced in resolving disputes in court, arbitration or by mediation.
Recent cases have involved misrepresentation and non-disclosure issues concerning excess of loss, stop loss, risk excess and surplus reinsurance contracts, aviation carve-out coverages, illegality and policy wording disputes.
We had a major role acting for North American reinsurers in a series of arbitrations concerning disputes arising from the PA LMX spiral
Our aim is to provide specialist and cost effective advice on issues of concern to the reinsurance market.
