Insurance

Our global team of insurance lawyers advises many of the world’s leading insurers and reinsurers on their most significant corporate, regulatory and transactional matters as well as on complex claims, class actions, disputes and investigations.

We have particular experience in blockchain, smart contracts and distributed ledger technologies, which are now the subject of both proof of concept trials and live deployments by insurance companies. We also help clients analyze, manage and mitigate the associated legal and regulatory risks related to the deployment of insurance technology or InsurTech, which is having a transformative effect on both the commercial and retail sectors of the insurance industry.

Operating from each of the world’s key insurance markets and with specialist lawyers drawn from across our practice, our clients benefit from our cutting-edge legal experience and deep industry knowledge to provide tailored solutions to their most challenging and high profile assignments.

Norton Rose Fulbright maintains one of the market-leading insurance practices in China. We have been at the forefront of the insurance market's development and have advised many international and Chinese insurance majors on a range of high-profile, first-of-its-kind deals in response to market dynamics. 

Our reputation has been built upon the quality of the services we deliver and we have achieved market recognition from insurance, reinsurance and insurance asset management clients in relation to legal advice on non-contentious transactions, as well as providing practical guidance navigating the complex regulatory landscape in China.

Additionally, our China team works seamlessly with our global insurance team, composed of more than 350 lawyers around the globe. We deliver a "one firm" approach that integrates geographical experience with deep sector knowledge, enabling us to provide clients with holistic advice on cross-border matters, where China elements are involved. These include many of the most active insurance markets such as China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, the United States and Canada.
