Club suing Axa for £250,000 after closing down during pandemic




Fletcher Day dispute resolution partner Nick Sutton is acting for Altrincham Football Club in a dispute with Axa Insurance regarding a business interruption claim.


Altrincham sued Axa in a High Court claim that said the insurer owes it £250,000 plus interest after the club was forced to close during the period March 2020 to June 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


The claim follows a UK Supreme Court ruling that says the insurer must pay.


Sutton is a civil and commercial litigator who specialises in insurance law.
