As Head of Litigation at RGS, Matthew Fitzpatrick discusses how an insurance company in Liechtenstein going into liquidation could have substantial repercussions and consequences for businesses throughout Northern Ireland.
Robert G Sinclair Solicitors have now been appointed as the sole preferred legal representative for Retail NI.
The RGS Litigation Department have been approached to consider the fact that Gable Insurance* are advising policy holders that their policy is no longer protected. Therefore, and in simple terms, as a business you may have paid insurance that doesn’t exist. Most importantly, this could leave you with not just the cost of the injury, but also the potential legal costs of the Plaintiff as well as your defence costs.
Is/was my insurance with Gable?
As one of the most forward-thinking law firms in Northern Ireland, we are always seeking to obtain the best results for our clients in the most expedient manner. Therefore, it is essential that if you held a policy with Gable, within the last six years, you contact ourselves to consider the implications of Gable Insurance going into Liquidation. If you are unsure that your insurance is/was with Gable, it is imperative that you check by contacting your broker immediately.
We cannot stress how important it is to act in this matter, as ultimately you could be left with a significant bill, and we advise all members of Retail NI to take an extremely proactive and robust approach to such matters by contacting Matthew Fitzpatrick, Head of Litigation at RGS.
As a member of Retail NI, and as the partnering Law Firm supporting them and their members, you can contact Mr Matthew Fitzpatrick on 02890231770 or email him on email@example.com to discuss how best to protect your business from this unfortunate situation.
