In a culture of ‘blame and claim’, professional indemnity cases are on the rise. This can have an adverse impact on insurers, involving them in lengthy and often highly complex disputes, as well as on the professionals themselves. Careful strategic handling of professional negligence claims and a sound cost/benefit analysis are therefore vital.
Deacons’ 30-strong insurance team is the largest and one of the most respected in Hong Kong, with a particularly formidable reputation for professional indemnity defendant work. As Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, we act for a numerous international insurers and their professional insureds across a range of sectors.
