Sarah Turpin is a partner who concentrates her practice on insurance recovery and counseling, representing policyholders seeking coverage under a broad range of insurance policies, including Professional Liability, Directors' & Officers' Liability, Public/Product Liability, Property/Business Interruption, Event Cancellation, Credit Risk/Political Risk, and Cyber/Technology Risks. She acts for policyholders in relation to disputed insurance claims, if necessary through litigation, mediation, or arbitration, and advises on claims notification and claims management issues.

Her policyholder clients come from a wide variety of industry sectors, with a particular focus on financial and other professional services, technology, leisure and entertainment, energy and manufacturing.

In addition to her coverage practice, Sarah represents directors, trustees, and other professionals in the mitigation and defence of professional liability claims.

Prior to joining the firm in September 2005, Sarah worked for a leading insurance coverage practice in the city, acting primarily for insurers and Lloyd's underwriters and their insureds, having trained and qualified in the insurance group of another prestigious city firm.

Sarah is currently co-global practice group coordinator of the Insurance Recovery and Counseling practice at the firm.
