            Working both in the UK and internationally we’re one of the largest specialist insurance teams in the UK and regarded as a national heavyweight. We offer our clients a complete solution, including coverage and litigation in both the public and private sectors.

            With consolidation both in the insurance and legal sector and ongoing regulatory change leading to a reduction in litigation frequency, the steps we have taken in recent years to diversify our offerings have enabled us to thrive in a changing market.

            DWF offer a range of claims and non-claim services to our insurance clients. We house a full service insurance team, handling thousands of outsourced motor, casualty, property and professional indemnity claims on an annual basis, whilst continuing to handle the most high value, complex and often sensitive claims for our clients. We are leaders in innovation, combining technology and service excellence.

            Our corporate and commercial service gives our clients a full service offering whatever their business needs and objectives.

            With investment in our non-contentious corporate insurance team in London, we have broadened our offering to the insurance market beyond claims.

            Our insurance and regulatory teams have been involved in some of the highest profile and sensitive claims this year, often with intense media coverage.

            Our clients include some of the UK's largest and well-known insurers, adjusters and corporates, including Aviva, RSA, Zurich, Chubb, Allianz, Direct Line and QBE, some of which stretch back over 20 years.
