Contentious Claim Review, Audit and Peer Review
Alan draws on his long and wide industry experience in marine insurance spanning over four different insurance markets to assist insurance companies, reinsurance companies and Lloyd’s Syndicates to achieve and maintain professional excellence in the fields of underwriting, claims and compliance.
Contentious Claims Review Prematurely and or incorrectly denying a claim and failing to follow sound claims handling practices may lead to a very long, protracted and costly journey before the courts.
Engaging Alan to review a contentious claim with a second set of professional eyes may assist insurers in making an informed decision as to its final outcome.
Audit and Peer Review involves engaging Alan as part of the due diligence process. Again, Alan can offer a second set of eyes and offer the benefit of his continuously active underwriting and claims experience.
History has taught us that sometimes it may take years or even many decades for claims to manifest. Example of this latent development can be found in the area of illness or injury arising from asbestos contamination and also in the area of pollution or environmental damage.
The defendant parties, such as shipowners and employers or contractors, who have been at the receiving end of such claims often require assistance in locating the relevant policy documents that may ultimately offer coverage for defence and indemnity.
Alan has proven to have the track record and expertise to locate lost policy documents or secondary evidence to support coverage.
Knowledge adds to skills and skills bring about excellence in our calling.
Through his teachings, Alan offers 40 years knowledge and experience in the industry and is able to offer valuable insights as well as expertise in the subject matter to improve the insurance practitioner’s skill set and professional standards.
Alan continues to assist associations and corporations both within and outside the insurance industry on matters of marine insurance.
