Insurance Law and the Financial Ombudsman Service is an in depth look at the workings and insurance decisions of the Financial Ombudsman Service.

This book sets out the rules, procedure and approach of the Ombudsman Service, succinctly summarises the relevant insurance law and compares and analyses it against a comprehensive review of material about insurance complaints gathered since the formation of the Ombudsman Service in 2001.
