“Edwin Coe handles all matters to the highest standards. The lawyers provide well thought-out advice that is then acted upon in an extremely efficient manner.”
Chambers UK 2024

Welcome to the Edwin Coe insurance team.

We are one of the UK’s leading insurance litigation teams, and we are acknowledged for our excellence in all of the recognised legal directories, both individually and collectively.

Why we are different

We are different because, unlike other specialist insurance firms, we act exclusively for policyholders and have no ties to particular insurers, underwriting syndicates, or insurance intermediaries.  This means that we can provide the highest quality advice on all aspects of your policy coverage, including related claims in professional negligence against insurance brokers and third party advisors.

We have specialised in complex insurance litigation for over 50 years and have considerable expertise in all areas of insurance law, and across a variety of business sectors.

Our experience, coupled with our strengths in commercial and restructuring work, enables us to assist clients not only in dealing with their disputed claim, but also in coping with cash flow, trade creditors and many other related commercial problems that often arise from the delayed settlement of an insurance claim.

We have also developed a number of flexible funding arrangements to assist clients with legal fees, and in appropriate cases will act on a “no win no fee basis”.

A disputed insurance claim can often feel as if the whole insurance market is against you, just at the time when you most need support.  Our role is to ensure that policyholders receive the best representation at a reasonable cost in order to maximise their recovery.  It is a role we have successfully fulfilled over many years.

If you have an insurance issue you would like to discuss, please contact a member of the team.
