As a prominent litigation practice, MHP is widely regarded and respected as one of the leading Irish insurance defence litigation firms, acting for many of the country’s leading insurance companies as well as self-insured clients. We’re proud of the partnerships we’ve built up in this sector over 50 years, and are today retained by many insurers to assist with the defence of liability, personal injury and professional indemnity claims, as well as coverage issues. We have extensive experience in all aspects of this work and have been involved in many high-profile insurance-related actions.
Handling disputes before all courts throughout the country – from the District Court to the Supreme Court – we deal with road traffic accidents, employer liability claims, public liability claims, product liability claims, medical negligence and professional negligence. We also regularly advise insurers on policy interpretation, mediation and arbitration disputes.
We have particular expertise in large-scale recovery actions, complex indemnity disputes, re-insurance issues, coverage disputes, policy interpretation and run-off cover. We are skilled at recognising indemnity issues and arbitrating these matters.
Client-centric and specialised
A specific, partner-led core team is dedicated to each insurance company with which we work. All team members are highly experienced and well-equipped to handle a high volume of cases.
With a view to keeping legal costs at a minimum, we start every claim with a comprehensive analysis that clearly identifies the claim’s strengths and weaknesses. We advise on how to deal with these and regularly review our strategy.
We have excellent relationships with our claims handler teams and have built up close associations with many insurance brokers as well as medical and engineering experts.
The systems are in place
We have comprehensive reporting structures and are able to adapt our case management system to each client’s specific requirements.
