Insurance Law Practice:
We view the companies that we work with not only as clients for a discrete project but also as business partners with whom we seek to create value over both the short and long term. We focus on providing advice in the context of the insurance sector as a whole and clients’ existing circumstances and aspirations within the industry.
Our Insurance practice is one of the largest and strongest, comprising over 300 lawyers serving the insurance industry globally.
We offer a comprehensive range of insurance services, including transactional, regulatory, commercial, coverage, dispute resolution and claims, competition, restructuring and emergency response.
We represent both startups and established multinational life and non-life (re)insurers, Lloyd’s entities, intermediaries, banks, other financial institutions, capital providers (including hedge funds, private equity funds and venture capital funds), regulators and other insurance industry participants.
We understand the business of insurance as well as the legal issues that underpin the insurance sector. Many of our lawyers previously worked as business executives, in-house counsel, bankers and management consultants within the insurance industry. This combination of legal and industry experience enables us to implement practical and cost effective solutions for our clients. Our strong international network of lawyers provides swift access to knowledge and coordinated cooperation across practice areas and jurisdictions.
We regularly second lawyers to work directly for clients and we welcome the opportunity this gives our people to deepen their understanding of the industry. We believe in building a deep understanding of each client’s business to enable us to deliver the appropriate outcome, whether the matter relates to structuring, negotiating and closing sophisticated transactions, litigating complex coverage and commercial disputes or addressing regulatory compliance concerns.
DLA Piper is a global law firm with 4,200 lawyers in the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, positioning us to help companies with their legal needs around the world.
We strive to be the leading global business law firm by delivering quality and value to our clients.
We achieve this through practical and innovative legal solutions that help our clients succeed. We deliver consistent services across our platform of practices and sectors in all matters we undertake.
Our clients range from multinational, Global 1000, and Fortune 500 enterprises to emerging companies developing industry-leading technologies. They include more than half of the Fortune 250 and nearly half of the FTSE 350 or their subsidiaries. We also advise governments and public sector bodies.
