Claims handled


These are the types of claim Jonathan Spencer has principally handled during his career to date. If you don't see what you are looking for, tell us and we can discuss whether or not we can conscientiously take it on. Successful claim outcomes revolve around a combination of factors, including thinking clearly, writing clearly, communicating clearly with assureds about underwriters’ expectations and insuring that surveyors produce coherent and comprehensive reports.
