Who We Are
Insurance advocates with 40 years of experience
Flaxmans are insurance advocates specialising in commercial and business insurance advice.
We sell no insurance whatsoever. Neither are we loss adjusters or assessors. We are entirely independent of any insurance company, intermediary or broker.
Flaxmans is highly regarded and recognised throughout the industry and our level of service and expertise is reflected in the considerable success rate for our clients. As professionals we charge fees for our services which invariably are covered through the successful claims outcome. Prior to embarking on a case we always ensure our clients are aware of the fees involved and the prospects of success and costs benefit ratio.
Our skills include insurance law and practice, insurance claims advocacy, claim negotiation, litigation support, mediation and management of distressed business risk.
In addition we design and implement bespoke insurance packages for businesses or organisations with a particular need (for example where there is no off-the-shelf insurance product available) and if required, source brokers on their behalf to place the insurance with an appropriate insurer.

With more than 40 years’ experience in the insurance industry, our Chairman Roger Flaxman, a member of the Academy of Experts and ACII Chartered Insurance Practitioner, has more than a decade’s experience serving as an expert witness in matters of insurance practice, duty of care and insurance market procedure.
“Insurance claims are not just about insurance. They are first and foremost about the business that is insured. Keeping a balance in mind between commercial objectives and legal niceties is a crucial aspect of our advocacy work”.
Over the years Flaxmans has continued to grow in meeting the demand for insurance claims advocacy and insurance dispute resolution. The company now consists of advisory commercial solicitor’s, specialist advocates, expert witness support teams and insurance professionals.
