Sue Carr QC
Insurance & Reinsurance
Sue has a strong insurance practice, both within and without the professional liability context.
She regularly advises on and litigates construction/policy points both in the professional indemnity field and more generally. This is also an area where she is often asked to arbitrate. In terms of court litigation, she recently led for the solicitor defendants in the important limitation ruling in AXA Insurance Ltd v Darby and others  PNLR 10 CA.
Insurance disputes handled include fire claims/arson defences and claims arising out of underwriters' liability under a partial loss clause in a Lloyds' Fine Art Dealer's policy. She acted in Persimmon Homes Ltd v Great Lakes Reinsurance plc  EWHC 1705 (Comm), in which the rights of ATE insurers to avoid were challenged (unsuccessfully).
