Nigel Colwell

Executive Adjuster


Nigel has been in adjusting for more than 30 years and joined McLarens in February 2007 to augment our corporate adjusting capability.  He manages key global property & business interruption/liability programmes whilst leading a range of major and complex losses across the world.

In his role, he has gained significant experience of the cultural and jurisdictional challenges which international losses present and has dealt with major catastrophic incidents including earthquakes and other natural disasters throughout Europe, South America and Australasia.


  • £8m loss relating to fire in a suspended flooring manufacturing plant, which resulted in complete destruction of building and contents together with associated BI claim.
  • £3m loss at industrial kitchen in Barcelona, which led to the facility being out of use for 18 months during which time production was transferred to alternative premises.  The entire plant was condemned and the first party claim was supplemented by a liability claim against the Insured for serious damage to adjoining Third Party property.
  • A £10m revenue claim for various hotels across Paris being part of an international chain following the Yellow Vest demonstrations that caused significant damage and general interference in business activities in late 2018/19.
  • A £5m property damage and resultant business interruption claim involving a large corporate hotel and conferencing facility in Fiji that arose following Cyclone Keni in 2018.
  • As a result of the earthquake that hit Mexico City in September 2017, a number of hotel locations suffered property damage and revenue losses which involved an eventual settlement of more than US3m.
  • A £7m revenue claim in Santiago, Chile involving a number of prestige hotels whose trading performance was heavily impacted as a result of anti-government rioting in the city in late 2019.
  • A £3m flood loss involving multiple locations for a Local Authority including two swimming pools following a severe weather event in 2020 where the nomination has been held for in excess of 20 years.
  • A £10m fire and revenue claim at a battery recycling plant in the UK, which involved destruction of the site and heavy contamination of Third Party property including a water course.
