Company business:       

Mactavish is the UK’s leading expert on insurance governance.

The firm has been operating in the commercial insurance sector for over 15 years. Its focus has always been on detailed, technical analysis which does not shy away from uncovering and studying uncomfortable truths, or challenging accepted wisdom. The company focuses on driving increased standards across the commercial insurance industry giving the business an unrivalled depth of expertise and a wide spread of clients.

Mactavish’s corporate clients range from FTSE 100s across all sectors to much smaller businesses with unusual or complex activities.  Project work typically spans analysis of business operations, risks and risk controls; reviews of insurance programmes, policy wordings and provider service contracts; advice around risk placement and negotiation; working with leading barristers/QCs to execute contract changes and also to resolve large or complex claims disputes.  In addition, Mactavish is an influential lobbyist and thought leader, publishes market-leading research into risk, insurance and placement issues and also works with insurer and broker clients to drive strategic and operational improvements across the industry.

Mactavish is licensed by the Bar Standards Board of the Bar Council to access barristers directly, for both contentious and pre-contractual legal work in the field of insurance. We believe the business is unique in the UK in this regard.

The company culture is highly professional and hardworking but relaxed and collaborative.
