Practice groupLitigation

As an associate in our (re)insurance team, Mbombo focuses on advising clients on (re)insurance disputes (litigation, arbitration, and ADR), and on regulatory matters.

Mbombo has experience in advising (re)insurer and (re)insured clients on complex, cross-border coverage, avoidance, and notification disputes across various classes of business including marine, charterers' liability, energy, and energy construction risks.

Mbombo also has experience, in the context of Warranty and Indemnity Insurance, of advising on the scope and extent of liability under warranties and representations made in connection with an SPA. In addition, he has assisted a client in overhauling its suite of Third Party Administrator Agreements and in subsequent negotiations over the implementation of the new contractual arrangements.

On the regulatory side, Mbombo has assisted in advising clients in relation to FOS investigations into - and ancillary commercial disputes arising out of - alleged PPI mis-selling. Mbombo's non-contentious work also includes advising on reinsurance and retrocession contractual wording.

Mbombo has also spent time on secondment at a Lloyd's corporate member, and with an in-house commercial legal team.
