Legal 500, 2012
Our Lloyd’s team forms an important part of our market-leading insurance practice, offering a dedicated and experienced team acknowledged as one of the very few that genuinely has the knowledge and experience to advise on all aspects of the Lloyd’s market.
Our team in London advises on transactional and regulatory matters. Our clients include Lloyd’s managing agents, brokers, investors, reinsurers and banks. We are committed to identifying issues early on and navigating the often complex regulations to offer practical solutions.
We work closely with our insurance lawyers throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia to provide integrated advice on all issues in the Lloyd’s market. We have also advised Lloyd’s syndicates and their reinsurers on some of the most high profile disputes, including those arising out of the Australian bushfires and Californian wild fires.
