Catrin Povey

Associate
Financial Services & Insurance

Catrin is an Insurance Associate in our Financial Services department.

Catrin specialises in both contentious and non-contentious work for a range of clients, from insurers, UK regulatory bodies to start-up InsurTechs.

On the contentious side, she deals with insurance claims, such as third-party recovery and liability claims, as well as coverage disputes, covering all commercial lines of business, in particular property damage, business interruption and fine art, specie and jewellers’ block. She also acts for clients with general commercial disputes and handles professional negligence claims.

Catrin has experience of dealing with claims in different jurisdictions, such as Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and Monaco.

On the non-contentious side, her work includes reviewing and drafting insurance policies covering traditional products, such as professional indemnity, to more bespoke products for InsurTechs.

An Italian speaker, Catrin heads up Capital Law’s Italian desk, dealing with international law queries.

Catrin is an exceptional lawyer but, more importantly, she is very easy to work with. Very understanding and obviously cares very much for her clients and the service she and Capital provides.
