There is a culture of integrity at Hardwicke, which is led from the top.

Chambers UK

Members of our market-leading and substantial Professional Liability team are frequently instructed to act in claims for or against solicitors, barristers, engineers, architects, surveyors, project managers, accountants, auditors, actuaries, financial advisers and insurance brokers. We are also regularly retained in D&O matters. Both Legal 500 and Chambers UK Bar recognise us as a leading set for Professional Liability and our ranked members are particularly regarded for their technical expertise and accessibility.

Members act for both domestic and international individuals, businesses and insurers.  Several members of the team have substantial relevant in-house experience from having worked at or been seconded to insurers, large solicitors’ firms, claims handlers or brokers.

As well as advising on the substantive dispute, members also deal with associated issues such as coverage and other professional indemnity insurance issues, as well as regulatory disputes.

Members of chambers are contributing authors to Construction All Risks Insurance, Construction Professional Indemnity Insurance (both Sweet & Maxwell), Insurance Broking Practice and the Law (Informa) and Risk and Negligence in Property Transactions (Law Society).

Members also frequently speak at industry events and seminars (and have continued to do so despite the recent lockdown), including Hardwicke’s own Zoom-based, informal #Hardwicke Brew series which involve great participation and uptake from clients.
