As the search for renewables moved offshore, it was natural for a firm with a strong marine insurance reputation to become heavily involved. Today, the energy industry, both on and offshore, poses some of the greatest challenges to the insurance market. 

We (are proud to) have established a wealth of experience in both the energy and insurance markets and as a result consider ourselves true specialists in the energy insurance field. We deal with direct covers and facultative reinsurance.  


We act for a broad cross section of insurers, buyers and brokers in the energy industry, across a range of high value onshore risks. Our offshore practice derives from contractors, oil and gas traders and the energy insurance market itself, from pure marine risks such as collision and salvage, through to issues such as control of wells.

The experience of our lawyers includes:

  • Energy Upstream
  • Offshore Construction
  • Operating Risks
  • Drilling Risks

Energy Downstream

  • Refining 
  • Generation
  • Mining
  • LNG 
  • Renewables


  • Petrochemicals 
  • Waste Treatment 
  • Tunnelling 
  • Railways 
  • Health & Safety
  • Machine Breakdown 
  • Project construction

Marine Transportation Risks

  • Hull/Project Cargo/Cargo 
  • Loss of Hire
  • Builders' Risks 
  • Mortgagees' Interest
The nature of the underlying issues varies from the catastrophic to the day to day incidents associated with heavy industry operating in harsh conditions and at the cutting edge of technology.

We are widely recognised as the ‘go to’ firm on the technicalities of energy insurance and are frequently instructed to engage in policy and programme reviews on contracts covering everything from drilling rigs to their insurance of offshore liabilities. We are experienced in property and liability claims as well as BI, LOPI and DSU matters.
