GAB Robins has been appointed by a major sponsor at next week's Olympic Games in Athens to provide claims handling for liability claims at all 38 venues. GAB Robins said it was also in negotiation with other major corporations to provide a similar service.

GAB Robins global business manager John Hall said its network was "geared up to be available 24/7 and provide a rapid response" for any employers' liability, public liability and product liability issues.
