Our team of leading surety loss adjusters has over 30 years’ experience advising the major surety companies as loss adjusters on all aspects of liability under bonds, primarily, but not exclusively, construction bonds both in the UK and Ireland.

We have been involved with many of the leading judgements concerning construction performance bonds and our experience enables us to engage quickly and meaningfully with all stakeholders to explore opportunities for the settlement of claims in a professional manner.

We pride ourselves in a constant drive for improvement and flexibility of service tailored to clients’ needs, which we are pleased has resulted in long standing relationships with our surety clients.

Our approach is very much based on pro-active early engagement with dispute avoidance being a key driver.

For each assignment, we determine the best match between consultant and the issues of the dispute by drawing from our pool of diverse technical backgrounds in property, construction, engineering and management.
