With nine partners and 50 other lawyers in the team, our insurance practice has been active in your sector for over forty years.

Unlike many of our competitors in the insurance field, we are a full service law firm. That means we are able to offer you a broad range of technical skills and in-depth internal expertise, all in one place.

We know what matters most to you is receiving an outstanding client experience. That is why we work hard to deliver a cost-effective service without sacrificing the prompt, practical, commercially focused advice for which we are known.  We start by assessing the issues you are facing, as well as what you want to achieve, before delivering the desired result in the shortest possible time.

Acting for insurance companies and intermediaries in the Lloyd's and companies markets and their insurers, as well as for overseas insurers doing business in the UK and abroad, our top rated team of commercial lawyers are based both in London and across the UK.  We advise on all aspects of non-contentious insurance and reinsurance, including solvency capital requirements, insurance group authorisations and restructurings, FCA, PRA and Lloyd's regulation.  We also provide clear commercial advice on distribution agreements and insurance programme reviews, including advising on the regulatory status and sale of new insurance products across multi-national jurisdictions, as well as a full range of general corporate and commercial disciplines.

We understand the importance of combining market leading legal advice, across the corporate and commercial disciplines, with industry experience.  That’s why many of the team have carried out client secondments, as well as having joined us from in-house insurance roles.
