Insurance Law

Compass Chambers offers advice and litigation services on all aspects of insurance and reinsurance, including extensive expertise and experience in matters involving the Motor Insurers Bureau. This expertise extends to a wide range of experience in contentious and advisory work, policy liability and interpretation.

Members of chambers are regularly involved in consideration of policy liability relating to other work in chambers, such as personal injury work and other reparation claims. We offer early advice to clients on whether and in what circumstances they may be on risk, or on whether they have cover under policies.

Instructions can be undertaken directly from insurers or companies under the Faculty of Advocates Direct Access Rules to provide a fast and cost effective method of obtaining legal advice.

Compass Chambers encourages the agreement of fees in advance to ensure a fair and transparent provision of legal services. Agreements can be tailored to suit any particular case and can either be on a block fee basis or on an hourly rate.
