Law firm ORJ has been instructed to defend a commercial action, bought by insurers Axa, which is seeking an indemnity following their payment under an insurance policy. ORJ’s Mike Smyth and Lesley White are to defend claim for £2 million brought against builder’s merchant, Jewson.
Beyond the parties’ actions in connection to the relevant events, this claim turns upon standard terms pursuant to which equipment was hired; and the reasonableness of clauses seeking to limit and/or extinguish liability.
Mike Smyth said: “This is one of a number of claims that we are seeing where insurers are trying to recover their outlay.”
