David Turner QC

Insurance Brokers & Agents

Much of David's work in this area is closely related to his “pure” insurance and reinsurance practice. Past and present cases include:

  • Acting for an international bank in a claim against its brokers based on the inclusion of a retroactive date in the bank's professional indemnity cover
  • Defending reinsurance brokers from a claim arising from the alleged incorporation of a claims notification condition into the reinsurance slip policy
  • Defending an intermediary against claim by underwriters arising out of the failure of Lloyd's to include an exclusion clause within a quotation for Italian medical malpractice cover
  • Defending coverholders against claims by insured and insurers arising out of a PA scheme for professional footballers
  • Acting for producing brokers in an action arising out of the placement of hull cover for a fleet of pleasure boats
  • Advising in connection with the potential liability of sub-brokers to underwriters arising from the operation of a line slip
  • Acting for defendant producing brokers in an action to which the insured, placing brokers, underwriting agents and insurers were also party, involving allegations of failure to place cover, non-disclosure and failure to notify the insured of relevant policy terms
  • Advising a cedant in relation to the potential liability of reinsurance brokers arising from the alleged non-disclosure of material facts prior to inception of various reinsurance contracts
  • Advising in relation to the Northern Ireland “phantom” EL cover claims
  • Acting on behalf of brokers in a variety of claims where Insurers had avoided for non-disclosure (normally of moral hazard) and the Insureds were seeking to pass claims (which were typically fraudulent) onto their brokers
