Working with the insurance sector

Insurers, Brokers, and their insured expect their professional advisers to be accessible, and experienced in giving clear, concise advice to which they commit.

Specters’ Healthcare team understand and meets those expectations.

Our dedicated medical malpractice team specialise in giving all types of advice in Healthcare disputes and are well versed in resolving disputes with both traditional litigation and alternative dispute resolution processes.
