Paul Wordley


I am one of the founding partners of the Wordley Partnership, having been a partner in a major international law firm where I was Global Head of Insurance & Reinsurance and a member of the Management and Strategy Boards, respectively.

My expertise is geared towards advisory, complex claims, dispute resolution and coverage issues in the international Insurance and Reinsurance markets. I act for policyholders, insurers, brokers, intermediaries, and reinsurers.

My industry sector areas of expertise are in aviation, energy, financial risks, industrial risks, commodities, technology, sports & leisure and natural resources.

I have also advised on many high-profile supply chain failures and resulting Insurance / Reinsurance claims around the world.

I have been involved in a number of high-profile international Insurance and Reinsurance claims over the last four decades and also regularly advises international clients on risk transfer, risk management and complex claims. I also have significant mediation experience having represented clients in several successful multi-million-dollar mediations.  Most recently this has included Covid BI claims, trade credit claims arising out of the GFC and claims arising out of the invasion of Ukraine.

I am recognised as a International Arbitration specialist and has advised on or conducted numerous arbitrations pursuant to ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, ICSID, SCC, LMAA and ad hoc arbitration regimes worldwide.

I have also been consistently recognised and recommended by expert legal directories as ‘exceptional’ and a “thought leader in the natural resources insurance Sector”. I was a member of the Law Society Indemnity Task Force which oversaw the ending of the Solicitors Indemnity Fund monopoly and the introduction of the primary commercial insurance regime to the provision of solicitors’ PI. I am a founder member and director of the Mining Insurance Risk Association.
