Pierre Thomas Law frequently acts for liability insurers to recover their outlays across the whole insurance sector. We frequently represent EU insurers pursuing recoveries in the UK and can also act for UK insurers who need to recover their outlays in other jurisdictions especially France and Spain. We have bilingual fee earners who are uniquely well placed to deal with this type of claim and we also work closely with a number of specialised and highly experienced agents in other EU states.
We can deal with pre-litigation recoveries right through to court action and enforcement in the UK and abroad ensuring better recovery rates and a corresponding reduction in overall expenditure.
We frequently advise commercial clients with regard to legal expenses insurance. The changes to jurisdiction rules brought about as a consequence of the UK’s departure from the European Union in 2021 mean that Legal Expenses Insurers will need access to reasonably costed advice on pursuing claims in other countries as a result of accidents suffered by their policyholders and which can no longer be brought in the UK courts.
Pierre Thomas Law can handle these cases directly for accidents in France and Spain avoiding the need for expensive agents in other countries and the inevitable difficulties in communication and managing costs. We offer a one-stop shop for these claims enabling seamless claims handling for insurers and their policyholders, maximising efficiency and minimising complaints arising from delay.
For claims in other European countries we have a network of agents with whom we have worked closely and successfully for many years.
