From sickly pop stars to adverse weather, there are many ways in which the smooth running of an event can be affected. We have extensive experience of advising on contingency insurance and reinsurance disputes and have been involved in a number of reported cases, including International Management Group (UK) Ltd v Simmonds, relating to the cancellation of Sahara Cup cricket matches. 

Members of our team advised on the notorious ‘gap’ film finance insurance and reinsurance claims of the early 2000s, acting for Lloyd’s syndicates and major London and international insurers and reinsurers.

We regularly advise on:

  • Event cancellation, postponement, abandonment and interruption
  • Film producers’ indemnity claims (covering cast, negatives, props, sets and wardrobes)
  • Non-appearance claims (resulting from the death, accident, illness or unavoidable travel delay of a performer)

As the market has developed into more niche areas, we too have grown our offering. We have the specialist knowledge required to advise you on issues arising from death and disgrace, transmission failure and prize indemnity fund insurance.

As active participants in the International Underwriting Association’s Contingency Committee, we are able to add a legal perspective to issues that impact on our clients’ business. We also help in the drafting of standard market wordings.
