Synergy Health (UK) Ltd v CGU Insurance Plc (t/a Norwich Union) & Ors

Richard Southern QC
Sarah Martin

Richard Southern QC and Sarah Martin acted for the broker, Towergate. The claim was successfully defended on all levels and is an important authority on the limitations on the extent of a broker’s duties, as well as the circumstances in which a finding of contributory negligence might be made in an action against an insurance broker. It also resolves the vexed question of whether credit must be given for depreciation savings in a claim under a business interruption policy.
