We only ever act for policyholders, so we’re always conflict free.

Wynterhill’s partners are seasoned lawyers who have not only drafted and negotiated policy wordings, but also guided insurance claims and disputes from initial notification to the highest appellate courts both in this country and abroad.

Our policy drafting is influenced by our claims experience; our claims work benefits from our policy drafting experience.

We understand the reliance you place on your insurance brokers in negotiating policies and progressing claims.

Our approach to working alongside insurance brokers is simple and straightforward:

  • We know our strengths.
  • We respect insurance broker’s skills.
  • We collaborate to make the best of both.

Policy Drafting

Services


A policy needs to reflect the realities of your business and the risks it faces, we have experience of achieving just that.

We regard prevention as better than cure.

Many of the problems that can arise when you claim under a policy can be avoided by some investment in getting the policy drafting right at the time at which you buy it.

Claims

Services


Preparation is key to everything we do.

The first stage of preparing for a claim is getting the policy drafting right.

Once a claim scenario arises we can identify which policies to notify and on what basis.

Disputes

Services


We can be a “one stop shop” for disputes.

For most business and people, disputes are an unwelcome distraction. By never losing sight of your commercial objectives we aim to make the process as quick and easy as it can be. We can also advise on litigation funding options and cost risk mitigation options.

The Financial Ombudsman

Services


We don’t routinely assist with complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service, but we know someone who does.

There may be situations where you do not necessarily require legal advice from us and would be more appropriately assisted by Smarterclaims Ltd in attempting to resolve a dispute yourself at a cost effective price, using standard form documents.
