We’ve been working in the insurance industry for over 40 years – and we work hard to deliver what matters most to you.

We balance legal expertise with being able to anticipate and understand the needs of your global, high profile and heavily regulated industry.

​We work hard to provide a service to insurance clients that other firms will struggle to match. 

Our team contains some of the leading experts in the insurance industry. With the majority having held in-house roles or secondments in major insurance organisations, there are few firms that can prove the deep, practical sector understanding that we can. 

Whether you are an insurance provider, broker, adjustor, part of the financial services industry (including offshore private equity and hedge fund organisations) or associated corporate, we recognise that managing and preventing risk, alongside a rising cost of claims, is a major problem. That’s why you’re looking to us to provide better value, through clear, commercial, actionable advice.

What makes our practice stand out is the seamless way our commercial and disputes advice works together to not only solve the problem but help to prevent it happening again. We have particular expertise in providing market-leading advice on distribution agreements and insurance programme reviews, including advising on the regulatory status and sale of new insurance products across multi-national jurisdictions. 

From professional risks claims to casualty work (including employers and public liability as well as catastrophic injury claims); reinsurance to corporate and regulatory insurance (including transactional and commercial work); financial lines (including banking and financial litigation as well as corporate governance and compliance); property risk (including a dedicated subrogated claims recovery service); the increasing field of cyber risk; FCA, PRA and Lloyd's regulation through to a broad range of commercial services, we’re by your side. Committed to delivering bold solutions backed up by expert insight, tireless innovation and an understanding of this transforming industry.
