Business critical issues – our specialism
We specialise in high-stakes matters and have a proven track record of delivering successful outcomes to our clients. Our clients trust us to advise them on the most critical aspects of their business from business transfers and re-organisations to potential regulatory breaches and complex, high-value, multijurisdictional claims.
Development of new products
We have extensive experience advising insurers, reinsurers and financial institutions when writing new types of business. Many of the products our team has developed are still the market leaders today, such as health trusts.
Cost saving innovation in legal services
We understand that three things matter to our clients most:
- the bottom line
- receiving real value
- keeping ahead of the curve in legal developments
These driving forces have led to us combining technology with our leading legal expertise. The result is the development of innovative solutions to meet the insurance industry’s needs. These innovations not only change the way we deliver legal services but also help you save money.
