The financial and business interruption implications following an environmental incident can be significant, especially when the event generates substantial publicity. Tough legislation, media attention and keen community awareness, along with the possibility of delayed, 'long-tail' claims, make businesses of all kinds increasingly vulnerable either as the cause of the pollution or as the victim of natural disaster.

Our underwriters and risk managers are well versed in dealing with the technical issues of complex risks and work side-by-side with brokers and clients to identify potential risks and suggest appropriate products. Our claims team works closely with clients to achieve a fair, timely and effective resolution of claims.
